Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is set to deliver a major address on current developments in the country.

According to Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), the Syrian president will deliver a speech on Monday “concerning developments in Syria.”

The speech will be the Syrian president's third since the beginning of unrest in Syria in mid-March. Scores of people, including security forces, have been killed during the strife.

In a recent development, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Sunday that Moscow would not back a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning the use of violence in Syria.

The shadowy opposition in Syria accuses the security forces of being behind the killings. However, the Syrian government blames armed gangs for the violence, saying that the unrest has been orchestrated from outside the crucial Middle Eastern country.

In April, the Washington Post published secret diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks, which indicated that the US has conducted a long campaign to overthrow the Syrian government.

The Syrian president has vowed to bring the elements responsible for the recent killings to justice.
