BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Tuesday that strongly condemned the military coup in Bolivia and expressed solidarity with the President-elect Evo Morales.

An official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants told SANA yesterday that the Syrian Arab Republic renews its support for the friendly Bolivian people in these difficult circumstances.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry further criticized the “blatant interference” by some states in Bolivian affairs.

Morales submitted his resignation after the army chief called on him to resign. The former Bolivian President has since moved to Mexico, where he was granted political asylum by the Mexican President.

Gracias por solidaridad con el pueblo Boliviano, igual que en Siria el imperio utiliza a la gente pudiente para aplastar a gobiernos progresistas de América Latina, la historia enseña que los Imperios caen y muy pronto lo hará el imperio Norte Americano.

It’s not progressivist to violate the constitution. Ideologically, I’m probably closer to Morales than to my own Prez, but when you distort the constitution or rig the elections, you deserve to be ousted.
