DAMASCUS, Syria  — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev is scheduled to arrive in Syria late on Monday, and is expected to hand over a message from Israel to Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Medvedev will address the rising tensions between Syria and Israel on the heels of the Israeli Scud accusations. The Russian leader was quoted Monday by the private Syrian daily Al-Watan as saying that his country was making serious efforts to help restart Arab-Israeli negotiations.

Medvedev said there should be a collective search for new ways to face "comprehensive dangers and challenges."
