(AP) The Syrian government has accused the U.N. peace envoy to Syria of bias.

In a statement Thursday, the Syrian Foreign Ministry criticizes Lakhdar Brahimi, saying his comments to the media show he has diverted from the core of his mission.

The statement was the strongest criticism of Brahimi since he took over from veteran diplomat Kofi Annan as the U.N.-Arab League peace envoy in the summer.

In a BBC interview, Brahimi called for real, not cosmetic change in Syria and accused Assad of resisting the aspirations of his people.

The statement also says he was blatantly bias toward those who conspire against Syria.
