A handout picture released by the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) on June 24, 2013, shows Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem speaking during a televised press conference in the capital Damascus. Muallem said a decision by backers of the Syrian revolt against President Bashar al-Assad to step up assistance to the rebels will only prolong the country's bloody war.
