Syria's news agency says that Syrian President Bashar Assad spoke to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan about the Middle East peace process over the telephone. SANA gave no timing or details on the two leaders' conversation in its Wednesday report, but Turkey is known to be mediating between Syria and Israel. After a visit to Syria last month, Erdogan confirmed his mediation role in hopes of restarting low-level peace talks as a prelude to bringing the longtime Mideast foes together.
