Syria denies Israeli report on peace message exchange
Syria denied what the Israeli newspaper Maariv had reported two days ago on messages directed by Syria to the Israeli designate Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on resuming peace negotiations as "baseless."
"These information are baseless," an official media source told SANA Sunday. The source asserted "Syria's continuous commitment and demand for achieving the just and comprehensive peace in accordance with the relevant international legitimacy and UN Security Council resolutions which provide for the full Israeli withdrawal from the occupied Syrian Golan to June 4th 1967 line."
"Such Israeli leakages from time to another aim at covering the Israeli racial and suppressive practices in the occupied territories and rejection of the just and comprehensive peace requirements in addition to its flagrant defiance to the international community and its resolutions," the source concluded.
