Syria warns Israel against military offensive

Source: PressTV§ionid=351020206

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem has cautioned Israel against any act of adventurism and launching a war against his country, saying such a move would only endanger the regime's stability.

"Israelis, do not test the power of Syria since you know the war will move into your cities," Muallem told a media conference with his visiting Spanish counterpart Miguel Angel Moratinos in Damascus on Wednesday.

"Return to reason, follow the path of peace ... and implement the requirements of peace fairly and comprehensively," he added.

"If a war breaks out in the region... it will be widespread even if it is waged against [only] southern Lebanon or Syria," Muallem warned.

Under the auspices of Turkey, Israel and Syria have held four rounds of indirect talks aimed at a comprehensive peace agreement. Negotiations, however, reached a stalemate in September 2009.

Syria withdrew from the talks in protest at Israel's December 2008-January 2009 military offensive against the Gaza Strip. At least 1,400 Palestinians were killed and 5,400 others were injured during the three-week long offensive.
