Iran FM in Syria to discuss Lebanon-Israel crisis

Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said Monday that a cease-fire and an exchange of hostages is feasible in the Israeli-Lebanese conflict. Mottaki was speaking after talks with Syrian Vice-President Farouk al-Sharaa. "We believe that we should think of an acceptable and fair [deal] to resolve this," he said. "In fact, there can be a cease-fire followed by a prisoner swap." "The circumstances prevailing in the region are not in the interests of the Zionist entity," he said. "The attack launched by Israel was orchestrated." Mottaki did not take questions.
