Syria on agenda during talks with U.S.
JERUSALEM -- Israel's foreign minister said yesterday that he would try to rally international support for a full Syrian withdrawal from Lebanon when he travels to Washington this week.
"The purpose is to act to get Syrian troops out of Lebanon, include Hezbollah on the list of terror organizations, dismantle their terror infrastructure," Silvan Shalom told Israel Radio.
"I think those things could also contribute to another of our objectives -- progress on the Palestinian front," he said. "If we do both simultaneously, it would contribute much more to the stability of the Mideast and the possibility of us conducting a dialogue with many more Arab and Islamic countries."
