BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Syrian government is ready to cooperate
with international and regional efforts to fight terror but efforts must
be coordinated with it, the Syrian foreign minister Walid al-Moualem
said on Monday.
Asked if Syria was ready to cooperate with the United States and
Britain, he said: "They are welcome."
Moualem, speaking at a news conference broadcast on Syrian state TV,
also condemned the killing of U.S. journalist James Foley, who was
executed by Islamic State, the militant group that has seized wide
areas of Iraq and Syria.
