Syria says U.S. warship prolongs Lebanon crisis
'Deployment of USS Cole, obstructing a solution to Lebanon's crisis,' said Foreign Minister Walid Moualem.
Syria accused the United States on Saturday of obstructing a solution to Lebanon's political crisis by deploying a warship off the Lebanese coast.
In the first reaction by the Damascus government to Washington's announcement on Thursday of deployment of the USS Cole, Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem said the United States would not be able to impose a solution by force.
