Syrian President Bashar Assad said on Monday that the current Israeli government was the weakest in Israel's history and that there was no chance of renewing diplomatic talks between the two countries. In an interview with the Saudi newspaper Al Jazeera, Assad said that a slew of European, American and Arab envoys had come to Syria in an attempt to mediate between Israel and Damascus, but that no serious contacts had taken place.
