DAMASCUS, Syria— A state-run Syrian newspaper on Sunday dismissed US accusations that Syria is undermining Lebanon's sovereignty, calling the claims "irresponsible."

Tishrin newspaper said the accusations reflect a "pure Israeli will" and that US policies lack credibility.

In statements made to reporters at the United Nations this week, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice singled out Syria and said it displayed a "flagrant disregard" for Lebanon's sovereignty and political independence.
