Syrian President Bashir al-Assad has admitted that his country is in a state of war. The admission comes as activists reported the heaviest fighting since the start of a fifteen-month opposition uprising. Syria's state news agency, SANA, says Mr. Assad made the comment Tuesday as he spoke to his new cabinet. It reported that he told the ministers that all government policies and efforts must be used to win the war between government and rebel forces. Earlier, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the Syrian military fired heavy weapons in rebellious areas near central Damascus on Tuesday. The activist group said violence across Syria on Tuesday killed at least sixty-two people, more than half of them civilians.



NATO has condemned Syria for shooting down a Turkish jet airplane on Friday. The alliance said the attack is an example of the Syrian government's disregard for peace, security and human life. NATO representatives met in Brussels. After the meeting, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said he does not expect the situation to get worse. He said he expects Syria to take all necessary steps to prevent such events in the future. He would not comment on possible NATO action. Turkey asked for the meeting under treaty rules that let a member nation call for talks if it feels its security has been threatened.



A court in Egypt has canceled a government order that gave the military the power to arrest civilians. The army-supported temporary government gave the order before the second election for president held this month. Rights groups, lawyers and politicians condemned the order. The court action comes as Islamist president-elect Mohammed Morsi works on forming what he promises will be a government that includes all Egyptians. Monday, Mr. Morsi moved into the offices of the presidential palace. He also met with Egypt's military ruler, Field Marshall Hussein Tantawi. State television said the military ruler promised Mr. Morsi he would support the president-elect.



European leaders are calling for much tighter central control of spending by the seventeen countries that use the euro. European Council President Herman Van Rompuy and other officials explained the plan Tuesday. The seven-page plan appeared to be aimed at pushing Europe's biggest economy, Germany, into closer financial cooperation with other European countries. That cooperation could include bonds that would raise money for all euro-zone members, not individual governments. Germany has not supported the so-called euro bonds. The nation says it fears increased borrowing costs. It also says debt-troubled countries would make less effort to reform their financial systems.



Burmese lawmaker Aung San Suu Kyi has asked France to support her country's democratic movement. During a visit to Paris, Tuesday, she told reporters that it is very important to make Burma's powerful military understand that democracy is for the good of everyone in the country, not just for a few. Aung San Suu Kyi met with French President Francois Hollande for dinner. At a joint news conference with Mr. Hollande, she expressed that Burma's new president wants to support democratic reforms there. She also said she could not say the same of Burmese military leaders.
