Assad Blasts Kerry's Peace Framework

Embattled Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad found the time on Tuesday to address U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s framework for peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA).

Speaking to a visiting delegation from Jordan, Assad blasted Kerry’s plan, and said that Syria opposes "the plan which seeks to commemorate Israel as a Jewish state. Kerry’s plan strives to empty Palestine of its Arab inhabitants."
