Syrian President Bashar Assad met with French Middle East peace envoy Jean Claude Cousseran in Damascus on Monday, and assured him of Syria's commitment to peace, Syrian news agency SANA reported.

Assad stressed the importance of Turkey being involved in Israeli-Syrian peace talks as mediator so that the two sides can continue where they left off in previous negotiations mediated by Turkey in 2009.

The Syrian president expressed gratitude at the efforts made by French President Nicolas Sarkozy to promote the peace process.

He added that he hoped the peace process can progress despite Israeli policies that are not helpful in reaching an agreement.
