  • Description

    The Austrian Foreign Minister, Dr Willibald Pahr, has just ended a three-day visit to Syria as head of an official delegation.

    SYNOPSIS: Dr Pahr had talks with Syrian Foreign Minister Abdel-Halim Khaddam during which the current Middle East situation was discussed at length.

    After his talks, Dr Pahr said he had been left with the impression that the Middle East situation had deteriorated over the past month. He said it was worse than before Egyptian President Anwar Sadat had made his visit to Jerusalem. Dr Pahr, who said he had a 'frank and clear' briefing on the Middle East situation, later said he was pessimistic about prospects for a peace settlement though he still believed there was a chance. The initiative now rested with Israel. The Austrian Foreign Minister ended his Damascus talks on Monday.
