Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad restated in Damascus on Sunday that his country has no conditions for peace realization in the Middle East region other than the implementation of related United Nations resolutions. 


Receiving a Chilean parties coalition Sunday, the Syrian President cited Damascus’ enthusiasm for peace asserting ''peace has to be genuine'' and adding that, ''Peace isn't a word void of content''. 


Earlier, Al-Assad received Ahmad Ibrahim Al-Taher, President of the Arab Parliamentarian Union for talks on the Union activities in strengthening Arab solidarity and coordination, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported. 


Al-Taher earlier held talks with Syria’s Deputy Premier and Foreign Minister, Farouk Sharaa on conditions in the occupied Palestinian territories and the need for an active Arab parliamentarian position. 


Furthermore, Sharaa held talks with Richard Spring, Member of the British House of Commons and a shadow government minister on regional and international conditions especially in the Middle East. 


Meanwhile, earlier Sunday, Damascus Radio warned against Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's bids to identify his “open-ended aggression” against Palestinians and Arabs with the “so-called international war against terrorism”, SANA concluded. (
