Video: Clinton -- Communications clearly a 'huge problem' for Syria

AP

As the conflict in Syria continues, the United States has decided to supply communications equipment, along with humanitarian aid, to the rebel forces fighting against the Assad regime. During a weekend summit in Istanbul with several countries important to the Syrian economy, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sat down with Andrea Mitchell of NBC News, to discuss the latest in the Syrian conflict.

“We’re looking at technical assistance, communications assistance,” Clinton said. “I met with a group of the Syrian National Council opposition, including a young woman who just got out of Homs and told us in wrenching terms what it was like being under bombardment by the Assad regime. And she made it clear communications is a huge problem. The United States has a lot of expertise in that.”

Clinton also spoke about current efforts to continue diplomatic negotiations with Iran and the U.S. presidential campaign.
