syrian regretsSyria has expressed regret about a decision by the French government to not allow Syrians living in France to participate in the upcoming presidential vote at the Syrian Embassy in the European country.

Syria’s presidential election will be held on June 3 in the country. The election at Syrian Embassies abroad, according to the country’s foreign ministry, is scheduled for May 28.
The statement further dismissed France’s objection, saying organizing presidential vote at the Syrian Embassies abroad is an issue related to the constitution and the laws in Syria.
“The Syrian people alone will determine with full freedom … who is going to lead them in the next stage heedless of all the hurdles which some are trying to put in their way,” the ministry stressed.
The ministry also urged the world public opinion to slam the "irresponsible" move by the French government.
Last month, Syria dismissed Western and opposition accusations regarding the presidential election, saying that it is planning to hold a free and transparent vote.
Campaigning for Syria’s presidential election also started despite the foreign-backed militancy that has plagued the Arab country for more than three years.
Three candidates, including incumbent President Bashar al-Assad, officially began their election campaign on Sunday.
On May 4, Syria’s Supreme Constitutional Court said Maher Abdel Hafiz Hajjar, Hassan Abdallah al-Nuri and Bashar al-Assad were qualified to run for president of the country.
Syria has been gripped by deadly violence since March 2011. According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies - especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey - are supporting the militants operating inside Syria. Over 150,000 people have reportedly been killed and millions displaced due to the violence fueled by the foreign-backed militants.

On Sunday, the Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry issued a statement, saying the French government has objected to such a vote on the entire French land.
The ministry termed the objection as "unjust", saying France "has unmasked its real face being against the Syrian people's aspirations for democracy and in conflict with the French people's values of freedom and democracy."
