"All of Syria's peace efforts have thus far been snubbed by Israel," Israel Radio quoted Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Migdad as having said in an interview with the pan-Arab Al Jazeera network. "The peace process should be resumed without the preconditions laid down by the US and Israel," Migdad said. "[But] if Israel chooses the path of war then Syria should be prepared for every eventuality." Meanwhile, Syrian Foreign Minster Walid Moallem condemned the arms deals that the US has recently signed with various regional powers, calling them "dangerous." A country that "wants to make peace [between two sides] does not arm the sides with weapons," Muallem said.
