Syria rejects Livni's call to cut ties with Iran, Hizbullah, Hamas

A Syrian government paper rejected Israel's demand that Damascus should cut its ties with Iran and Arab terror groups as a condition for peace agreement.


The state-run Tishrin said in Saturday's editorial that any preconditions to a deal would "put the carriage before the horse" and Syria's relations with other nations were not on the bargaining table. Saturday's editorial in the paper, which reflects official policy, comes in response to comments two days earlier by Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni that Syria had to stop supporting Hizbullah and Hamas and cut ties with Iran.
