SYRIA: Police woman of the world gives Syria her orders...
"We're... waiting and watching to see what comes from the Syrian government," the US official said after a London conference to establish a roadmap for political transition in Libya.
"We support the timely implementation of reforms that meet the demands that Syrians are presenting to their government, such as immediately eliminating Syria's state of emergency laws, " added Clinton.
Presidential adviser Buthaina Shaaba Tuesday told AFP that the state had decided to lift the state of emergency that imposes restrictions on public gatherings and movements and authorises the arrest of "suspects or persons who threaten security".
Despite Assad's promises of change, activists say more than 130 people have been killed and scores injured in clashes with security forces at pro-reform rallies. Officials have put the death toll at around 30.
