Defense Minister Amir Peretz said that Syria was continuing to act against the Lebanese government led by Prime Minister Fuad Saniora, while simultaneously calling for peace. Peretz comments were made during Wednesday's cabinet meeting, during which he also addressed US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's visit to Israel. Her visit would promote the renewal of talks with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. According to the defense minister, Rice was trying guide the Palestinian people towards the direction of establishing a government that would answer to the demands of the quartet.
