Syria is supporting Palestinian and Lebanese terror groups and therefore, is not a partner for peace, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman reportedly said in an interview published on Saturday. "We need to look at the reality. Until today, Syria is hosting the headquarters of terror organizations such as Hamas and the (Islamic) Jihad," AFP cited Lieberman as telling the German Zeitung newspaper. "Syria supports Hizbullah and its arms trafficking into southern Lebanon. Syria supports Iran's nuclear program. That is why I cannot see in Syria a real partner for any type of agreement," Lieberman was quoted as saying.
