Syria welcomed Washington's latest efforts to facilitate renewed peace talks between Israel and Damascus, London-based Arabic language daily Asharq al-Awsat reported on Sunday.

Syrian sources considered the US push for peace a "declaration of good intentions" by the Americans, but questioned if in Israel there was a partner "willing and able to make peace."The comments came after US envoy to the Middle East George Mitchell met with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus on Thursday to explore the possibility of restarting an Israeli-Syrian diplomatic track.
