From him we expect the announcement of reforms, including the end state of emergency in force since 1963, but so far has only been given a commission to study possible policy changes.

Damascus justifies a state of emergency with the tensions still under way with Israel. Syria.

Saleh has repeatedly tried to calm the protest with a whole series of concessions: first he promised not to participate for a new presidential term in 2013, then undertook to resign by the end of the year, but the protesters have not given up taking by continuing to ask that you leave immediately.
