Expresses its support for the Syrian people in their struggle for freedom, respect for human rights and civil liberties, democratic self-governance, and the establishment of the rule of law.
Encourages the President and the Secretary of State to assist dissidents, human rights activists, and the nonviolent pro-democracy opposition in Syria.
