Turkish Foreign Minister Ali Babacan arrived in Damascus on Saturday at the start of a Mideast tour to discuss the possibilities for peace in the region. Babacan was greeted at Damascus Airport by assistant foreign minister, Abdul-Fattah Ammora. He is expected to also visit Jordan, the Palestinian territories and Israel as part of his regional tour. An IAF raid on a Syrian target near Syria's border with Turkey last month is expected to figure high in Babacan's talks with Syrian officials.
