"We agree with [US] President [Barack] Obama's approach to a regional settlement of historical disputes. I'm ready to take a jet to Damascus to meet President Bashir al-Assad," Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Time magazine in an interview published Friday morning. In the interview, Lieberman also sharply criticized Obama's approach to the Iranian nuclear debacle. "This really fanatic extremist regime is still in power, and the young people who are ready to fight and die for change are not getting any real support from the West," he said. "The fact that this regime continues to be an acceptable partner for dialogue is really a bad message. It shows the bad guys are winners."
