WASHINGTON - The United States is not working to undermine the Syrian government but President Bashar al-Assad "needs to address the legitimate aspirations of his people," State Department spokesman Mark Toner said on Monday.

"No we are not working to undermine that government," Toner said in response to a question at a media briefing, adding the U.S. government was working to promote democratic processes in Syria and elsewhere in the world.

"The Syrian government perceives this kind of assistance as a threat," he said.
