Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Mualem said Saturday that with the end war in Lebanon, an opportunity has been created to revive the peace process in the region. In the interview published in London's a-Sharq al-Awsat Saturday, Mualem said a narrow window of opportunity existed for renewed peace efforts, but whether any efforts were made depended on the will of the international community. Mualem said the Arab world could not expect the United Nations to lead peace efforts in the region. "We cannot put much hope in the Security Council, which took 33 days to decide on a cease-fire in Lebanon," Mualem said.
