DAMASCUS, Syria — Syria's foreign minister on Saturday compared US accusations that Damascus is sending weapons to Hizbullah to Washington's pre-war claims against Iraq.

Walid al-Moallem said it is US weapons going to Israel that are destabilizing the region.

US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton asserted Thursday that Syria is transferring increasingly sophisticated rockets and other weaponry to militant groups in Lebanon and Gaza and that the shipments could spark a new conflict in the Middle East.

Moallem said the world should not forget what he called "the US campaign of slander" before the Iraq war, referring to the incorrect US claims that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
