An Israeli government led by Likud chairman Binyamin Netanyahu would not be an impediment to the resumption of indirect peace talks with Damascus, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Moallem said Saturday, adding, however, that "Syria and Israel are still in a state of conflict." In an interview with Al Jazeera, the Syrian foreign minister said that in order for talks to resume Israel would first have to assent to Syrian demands. "Peace cannot be comprehensive if it does not include an Israeli withdrawal from the Syrian and Lebanese territories and a right of return for Palestinians," Moallem said.
