In their semi-annual bilateral Strategic Dialogue meeting Thursday, Israel and the United States condemned Syrian President Bashar Assad for the ongoing violence he is inflicted upon the Syrian population, and singled out Iran and Hezbollah as being chiefly responsible for supporting the embattled Alawite president.

The Strategic Dialogue, which is held at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem, is the highest level of regularly scheduled diplomatic meetings between the two countries. Israel was represented by Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon, which the US delegation was headed by Secretary of State William Burns.
