Denmark's foreign minister urged the West on Tuesday to exert efforts to help bring peace in the Middle east and said Syria was willing to be "part of the solution." Wrapping up a two-day visit to Damascus, Per Stig Moller said he had "very constructive" talks Syrian President Bashar Assad and other officials, mainly about launching new peace talks with Israel.
