Dick Cheney insists that US troops should not pull out of Iraq.
“We believe that a timetable for the withdrawal … will help in reducing violence”
Walid Moallem, Syrian foreign minister
“Syria renews its condemnation of all acts of terrorism that are occurring in Iraq and are harming the Iraqi people. We call you to cling to your unity,” he said.
Moallem also countered US and Iraqi complaints about poor control of the long border between Iraq and Syria, saying that Washington was unable to control its border with Mexico and had resorted to constructing a wall.
