Syria happy that they are getting support from - Cuba

From Syria's SANA news agency:
HAVANA, (SANA) – Cuba on Friday rejected the UN Security Council statement on Syria and stressed its confidence that the Syrian people and government will solve their internal problems.

Cuban Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs, Marcos Rodriguez, reiterated in a statement Cuba's deep concern over dealing with the situation in Syria by the Security Council under pressure by the West powers, AFP reported.

The statement added that Havana reiterates confidence in the ability of the Syrian government and people to solve their internal problems without any foreign intervention and calls for full respect to the sovereignty and independence of Syria.
Wow...Cuba! I had no idea that Syria had such influential support!

Meanwhile, there are reports of 15 more killed today, random shelling by tanks in Hama - the usual stuff.
