Assad to Carter: Israel unwilling to make peace

Israel is not willing or able to make peace with the Palestinians, Syrian President Bashar Assad said to former US President Jimmy Carter on Tuesday. The comments were reported by DP News, a Syrian news agency.
The two were at a meeting of the Group of Elders delegation in Damascus.  The group, brought together by Nelson Mandela, set out to offer their "collective influence and experience to support peace building."
Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal was also in attendance.
