Israel not a peace partner of Arabs: Syrian presidentMarch 30th, 2009 - 6:47 pm ICT by IANS
Doha, March 30 (DPA) Syrian President Bashar al-Assad Monday said Israel’s new right-wing government was a reflection of the direction the Jewish state was taking, making it an unsuitable peace partner for Arab states.
“What is changing in Israel is superficial, the core remains the same - against peace,” al-Assad told the Arab League summit in Doha, Qatar.
“Israel’s right is like the left and like its middle. Israel is not a peace partner to the Arabs,” he said, adding that Arab initiatives for peace could not be effective when “the other party is not serious in reaching peace.”
“We have to depend on our selves because peace will not be accomplished with an enemy that doesn’t want peace,” said al-Assad.
