Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Mualem said on Thursday that his country could not settle the border with Lebanon in the vicinity of the Sheba farms, since that territory was occupied by Israel. In an al-Jazeera interview, he stated that the two countries could settle the border issues only in the area north of problematic area. Earlier in the week, Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora met with US President George W. Bush, asking him for help in resolving the border issues.
