Syris is not supporting, funding, helping or even turning a blind eye to the violence in Iraq. Syria’s not involved. That’s according to the Iraqi Transport Minister Awdeh Al-Maliki, who left Damascus today after a three day visit.
“I can assure you that the Syrian government has nothing to do with what is happening in Iraq,” he said.
Also today the Iraqi government switched its anger from Syria to Jordan. Government spokesman Laith Kubba said that the insurgency is being supported from inside Jordan, and that support is “unacceptable”. He said that former Ba’athists are beign harboured in Jordan and are supporting the rebels in Iraq.
