Ahmed Salih Tuma, the new interim prime minister elected by the Syrian opposition, held a press conference in Istanbul and called on Syrian people to help the government in its mission of bringing back the civilization and development to the country.

Prime Minister Tuma said future generations will remember them with their efforts, not with their names. He claimed the interim government was founded to save Syria from the grip of a failed state.

"Reinforce the right side, by this means, be with us so that the innocents will regain their rights," Tuma told the Syrian people.

Declaring they would not paint a rosy picture, he said there were great obstacles and they should overcome them. He emphasized their work will be undertaken in three areas; humanitarian works, security and infrastructure. He added that the government's priority is to supply food and security in a safe way for civilians.

"One of the most important goals is to ensure a state which is democratic, free and fair to all citizens and the government will make a plan to provide security with the Ministry of Defense and Interior in a coordinated manner," said the Syrian PM.

Tuma said the Ministry of Justice will work to ensure the separation of the judicial and executive bodies so the former will do its work in a fair way which guarantees justice during this transitional period. He added that the Ministry of Education will establish an educational program for Syrians.
