Syria welcomed the Iraq Study Group report on Thursday, praising its emphasis on the need to settle the Arab-Israeli conflict and reiterating that Syria's priority is to regain the Golan Heights. An unidentified Syrian Foreign Ministry official made clear what his government would want from the United States in return for help in trying to reduce the violence in Iraq.
