US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will visit Damascus next week for talks with Syrian officials, a US Embassy official said Friday, making her the highest-ranking American politician to come to Syria since relations began souring in 2003. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media, said Pelosi would be leading a delegation of members of Congress and would arrive on Tuesday and leave Wednesday. There was no word on Pelosi's schedule or agenda in Damascus.
