DAMASCUS (AFP) - PLO chief Mahmud Abbas held a second day of talks with Syrian officials on a mission to patch up strained ties with the government and with Damascus-based Palestinian opposition groups.
Abbas, leading the first official Palestinian visit to Syria since 1996, met Prime Minister Naji Otri a day after talks with President Bashar al-Assad and leaders of Palestinian militant groups.
Otri and Abbas discussed “the (Middle East) peace process which has been frozen because of Israel hostile positions towards a just and comprehensive peace based on international resolutions,” state-run SANA news agency said.
“Syria backs the struggle of the Palestinian people to recover their rights, liberate their land, (secure) the return (of refugees) and set up an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital,” Otri told Abbas.
On Monday, Syria and the Palestinian leaders agreed to coordinate their efforts to make peace with Israel, Abbas said after talks with Assad, who last month offered to reopen negotiations with the Jewish state.
And there are probably people somewhere who believe this.
