Syria won't cut Iran, Hizballah ties in peace deal

Wednesday, April 30, 2008 |  by Staff Writer

A top Syrian official on Tuesday told Arab media that Damascus will never agree to sever its strategic alliances with Iran and the Lebanese terror group Hizballah, even in the framework of a peace agreement with Israel.

Speaking on Hizballah's Al Manar television news network, Dr. Samir Al-Taki, said to be heading Syria's indirect contacts with Israel, said it was naive of anyone to think Syria would seriously consider cutting ties to its strongest regional allies, both of which advocate the destruction of the Jewish state.

Nevertheless, Syria continues to insist it will not even hold public talks with Israel unless Jerusalem first agrees to the total surrender of the Golan Heights.
