Damascus: Syrian Foreign Ministry slammed Thursday the speech of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi on Syria as "flagrant intervention" in the country`s affairs.

In a sharp riposte on Thursday, the ministry said Morsi`s remarks on Syria are an outright encroachment on the Syrian people ``s right to choose their future without foreign intervention.

On Wednesday, Morsi delivered a hard-hitting speech at the Arab League ministerial meeting in Cairo, saying that "I tell the Syrian regime that there is still a chance to halt the bloodshed."

"What Morsi has said is part of the media instigation that aims at aggravating the violence in Syria and thus," the ministry said, adding there is no difference between him and "other governments that are supporting the armed terrorist groups with money, arms and training, which have made them partners in shedding the Syrian blood."
