US President Barack Obama's Mideast speech on Thursday offered nothing new and only reaffirmed US staunch support for Israel, AFP quoted Syria's official SANA news agency as saying on Friday.

"The US president's speech on the Middle East had nothing new as far as his country's policies on the peace process, the situation in Iraq or security or regional stability are concerned," news agency said as quoted by AFP.

The SANA report added that Obama's speech, broadcast live on Syrian television, "reaffirmed the deep-rooted and unwavering support for Israel's security."
