The situation in Syria is quite different from Libya.
We have a relationship with Syria, an old relationship. We also have good relations with the people of Syria, with all segments of the population. This is the situation as well in Iraq and other countries.
I don't see a situation where one side will win militarily, take over Syria, and there will be peace and quiet, a clean victory.
Ich empfinde mein Amt zunehmend als gedankliche Einschräkungs-Situation.
Always turn a negative situation into a positive situation.
You can't make war in the Middle East without Egypt and you can't make peace without Syria.
