German FM condemns Syrian tanks in Golan buffer zone

German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle on Monday condemned Syria for allowing three of its tanks to enter the demilitarized zone in the Golan Heights on Saturday.
During a visit to Vientiane in Laos, Westerwelle called on Syria not to take any steps that would endanger the cease-fire in that area.
“The security incident in the Golan Heights in worrisome,” he said.
The cease-fire there under the UN has significance for peace and security in that area as a whole, Westerwelle added.
