Syria on Thursday denounced an air force pilot who defected as a "traitor" and said it wanted to recover the warplane he used to flee into neighbouring Jordan.

"The pilot is considered a deserter and a traitor to his country, and to his military honour, and he will be sanctioned under military rules," state television quoted the defence ministry as saying.
