Time for change in Syria: Morsi

Time for change in Syria: Morsi(Cairo) – Egyptian President, Mohamed Morsi during a meeting of Arab League ministers said that it is time for the Syrian regime to step down and resolution of the crisis was an Arab responsibility. “I tell the Syrian regime, there is still a chance to end the bloodshed. Now is the time for change… no time to be wasted talking about reform,” Morsi told the Cairo meeting.
He added, “Don’t take the right step at the wrong time… because that would be the wrong step”. He urged President Bashar al-Assad to “take lessons from recent history” and step aside, in reference to Arab Spring revolts that overthrew the longtime dictators of Tunisia, Egypt and Libya.
Addressing Arab states he said, “We cannot sleep while Syrian blood is being shed”, adding “If we don’t move, the world won’t move with any seriousness.”
