During the first official visit of a Syrian president to Argentina, the South American nation's leader expressed support for Palestinian statehood and Israeli border security and called on Israel to return the Golan Heights to Syria.

Argentine President Cristina Fernandez also swiped at Israel's reliable UN ally — the United States — at a luncheon for Syria's Bashar Assad on Friday."The countries who have a seat on the Security Council can violate and ignore United Nations resolutions, and only the smaller countries, or those without military or economic power, are obliged to follow them," she said.
