Syria on Wednesday voiced opposition to making any revisions to the Arab-Israeli peace initiative endorsed by Arab leaders five years ago and cast doubts over Israel's willingness to make peace in region. Arab leaders are expected during their annual summit in Saudi Arabia later this month to focus on the possible revival of the 2002 initiative to end the Arab-Israeli conflict. Syria cautioned against making changes to the initiative saying, it "absolutely rejected for some hostile fingers to toy, directly or through brokers, with the agenda of the (upcoming) summit so that its decisions would come in harmony with the Israeli and American interests," the Tishrin government newspaper reported in a front-page editorial. The peace initiative was adopted at an Arab League summit in Lebanon in March 2002 and offered Israel normal relations with the Arab world for the first time in exchange for a complete withdrawal from territories lost by Arabs in wars against Israel.
