Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said Saturday that his country is ready to make peace with Israel, Army Radio reported.

Mekdad said that it was Israel that was holding back on a peace agreement between the two countries.

According to the report, Mekdad added Syria is interested in strengthening ties with the US and reaching a peace agreement in the Middle East.

Mekdad claimed that a comprehensive peace agreement in the region would bring an end to the disagreement between Syria and the United Stated regarding Hizbullah in Lebanon.
