U.A.E. TV: Syria in 'secret talks' with U.S. and Israel
This clip, a news report from Abu Dhabi TV in the U.A.E., elaborates on 'secret talks' going on between Syria and Western countries to reach a 'political deal.'
The 'secret talks' entail Syria being asked to stop backing groups that the West sees as terrorist groups, and also break its alliance with Iran, in exchange for economic assistance and security from the West.
However, this report notes that, "there is still a possibility that the war may spiral out of control and extend to other countries, especially Syria." and goes on to state:
"According to Israeli sources, there are several reasons at the present time preventing Washington and Tel Aviv from attacking Syria. Some of these reasons are the situation in Iraq and the absence of an alternative leadership in case the Syrian regime collapses."The Syrian army has been on high alert since the attacks on Lebanon began about three weeks ago.
