Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Moratinos said Sunday that Syria wanted to renew contacts with Israel. Following meetings over the weekend with Syria's president, Bashar Assad, and its foreign minister, Walid Moallem, Moratinos said he was impressed by Syria's attitude on Lebanon, which he called "very positive." Damascus supports the UN's ceasefire resolution, Moratinos said, and is interested in helping to implement it. Moratinos added that peace could not be achieved in the Middle East without the participation of Syria. Moratinos faced harsh criticism from the US over his meetings with the Syrian leadership.
