BEIRUT - Syria on Wednesday rejected as "blatant interference" an accusation from the United States that it was failing to live up to an Arab League accord to end violence against anti-government protests.

"Such a statement is offensive to the Arab League...because it is a blatant interference in the core of its work, the sovereignty of its states and an unjustified attempt to internationalize (the Syria crisis)," Foreign Ministry spokesman Jihad Makdesi said in a statement.
