Syria Says Iran Approves Israel Talks

Friday, 28 May 2010 10:58 AM

JERUSALEM -Iran indicated approval of Syria's indirect peace talks with Israel, Syrian President Bashar Assad said in a interview with US television show host Charlie Rose on Thursday night.

Assad remarked that Iran had publicly and privately supported Syria's informal talks with Israel.

"If we have peace and we're sure that we are going to have our land back then surely Israel will live normally, like any other country in this region," said Assad.

Earlier in the week, Assad said that he was willing to sign a peace agreement with Israel in exchange for the Golan Heights.

The Syrian president also dismissed claims that his country supplied Hizbullah with long-range Scud missiles, stating that it was an "anecdotal story [told by] Israel."
