Carter: Israel Must Surrender Golan, Judea and Samaria

At a meeting with Syrian President Bashar Assad Saturday, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter said that Israel had to withdraw from all territories demanded by Syria and the Palestinian Authority if it expected to have peace with its neighbors. "You can't expect genuine peace between Israel and any of its neighbors until it has peace with all of its neighbors," he said.

Carter also said he expects relations between Syria and the U.S. to improve under President Obama. "It's my hope that we can also see full diplomatic relations and friendship restored between Damascus and Washington at an early day in the new year," he said.
