DAMASCUS, Syria — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Saturday that Middle Eastern countries will "disrupt" American and Israeli plans to change the political geography of the region, appearing to brush aside US efforts to forge a regional peace deal between Israel and its neighbors.

Ahmadinejad made the comments during a brief stop in Syria, a key all in Teheran's confrontation with the West, where he held talks with his Syrian counterpart, Bashar Assad.

The meeting comes two days after Assad sat down with the Obama administration's special Middle East envoy, George Mitchell, in Damascus to discuss starting separate Syria-Israel peace talks.
