" ... Koucnher said that Syrian President Bashar Assad "repeated three times that he was not insisting on veto power or on supporting Hizbullah."
He pointed to Syria's "new diplomatic approach and its openness to Saudi Arabia and Iraq, prior recent accusations." 
On Iran, Kouchner did not rule out "a negative Iranian interference" pointing to "the continuous flow of Iranian weapons to Hizbullah which possesses 15,000 missiles." He accused Iran of "continuing to support extremists groups" in reference to Hizbullah, Hamas and other. ....
