In an interview with Syrian media, the Syrian premier discussed his country's close ties with Beirut. "Lebanon is the weakest link in Syria's back," he said and added that Damascus is extremely concerned with Lebanon's welfare, security and stability. "It worries us because it's related to our national security."
This is the Syrian prime minister's second anti-Israel statement in the last week. On Thursday he said that should Israel try to start a war with Syria it will "pay a heavy price." In an interview with a Yemenite magazine, Al-Otari said that Israel was the Arab and Islamic nation's greatest enemy and noted that international elements are helping it achieve its goals in the region.
