Syria's Assad names hard-line Farouk al-Shara VP
02/11/2006
Syrian President Bashar Assad ordered a major Cabinet shake-up Saturday, signaling he was hardening his stand against building US and international pressure over the assassination of a former Lebanese leader and Damascus' alleged failure to stop foreign fighters from crossing into Iraq. Assad named his hard-line Foreign Minister Farouk al-Shara as vice president and replace him with his deputy, Walid Moallem, a former ambassador to the United Nations. Al-Shara was also put in charge of implementing Syrian "foreign and information policies."
