The White House is condemning the violence in Syria and calling on the nation's government to regain stability through political dialogue with its people.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, "We strongly condemn and oppose the violence in Syria, and we continue to work unilaterally and collectively with our allies to urge the government of Syria to cease the violence, to engage in political dialogue because stability will not come.

There are a lot of reasons, one - it's abhorrent to use violence in any form against peaceful protesters and against unarmed citizens, their own citizens. And two - if what they seek is stability, they are sowing the seeds of more instability by doing what they're doing, and we strongly condemn that."
