Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul left for Syria on Tuesday to discuss the cease-fire between Israel and Lebanon and Turkey's possible contribution to a peacekeeping force, stressing that Turkey will never accept mission to disarm Hezbollah. "The reason of my visit to Syria is to exchange views about how we can contribute to establishment of peace and stability at this difficult time," Gul told reporters at the airport before his departure. Gul said he would meet with Syrian President Bashar Assad and Syrian counterpart Walid Moallem. Gul had visited Israel on Sunday, following a trip to Lebanon earlier last week. On Monday, Turkey's top political and military leaders called for the speeding up of diplomatic efforts to promote a lasting peace in Lebanon but refrained from commenting on whether Turkey was ready to send peacekeepers.
