Syria offers to mediate between Iran and Britain

April 4th, 2007 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

Playing a very clever game here.

Syria has offered to mediate in the Iran-UK dispute. Iran is holding 15 British sailors and marines which it accuses of tresspassing into Iranian waters. The UK denies this and has refused to apologise.

Syria – which has excellent contacts inside Iran and reasonable relations with Britain – has offered to mediate. Iran has refused, saying it is a bilateral issue, and the UK knows what it has to do (sound familiar Bush?).
