Syria's foreign minister on Monday urged the Israeli government to listen to voices within Israel calling for the resumption of peace negotiations, and said his country would respond positively to such calls from the Jewish State. "We appreciate the Israeli voices who call for the resumption of the peace process with Syria," said Walid al-Moallem, urging the Israeli government to respond to these calls and resume talks. When Israel responds, "it will find Syria ready to resume peace negotiations," the foreign minister said during a press conference in Damascus with his Norwegian counterpart, Jonas Gahr Store. "Israel wants peace with all our neighbors including Syria," said Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev on Monday, responding to the Syrian comments. "But it is very difficult to take the Syrian government seriously as a partner in peace when that government has strategic alliances with the enemies of peace, including Iran, Hizbullah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad."
