US President George W. Bush insisted anew Monday that any Mideast cease-fire be dependant on a wider agreement and called on Iran and Syria to stop supporting Hizbullah. "Iran must end its financial support and supply of weapons to terrorist groups like Hizbullah. Syria must end its support for terror and respect the sovereignty of Lebanon," Bush said in a speech at the Port of Miami. Bush also emphasized that Israel was "exercising its right to defend itself" against "Hizbullah's unprovoked attacks," which began the crisis, and said that America mourned the deaths of innocents on both sides.
