Damascus: ''Syria Accountability Act'' - Another source of regional tension
Damascus radio said Saturday that U.S. President George Bush, signing on the so-called "Syria Accountability Act" under the "pretext of terrorism," has added a new obstacle in the face of the Syrian – American relations.

It clarified that U.S. disregarding of the Israeli occupation, accusing those who resist the occupation with "terrorism" and adopting the double – standard policy will give nothing but more tensions.
It concluded by saying that peace would not be achieved unless it was just and comprehensive based on land – for – peace principle.
