Syria seeks peace

Syrian President Hafez al-Assad yesterday called for reconciliation in Lebanon following the overthrow of Christian leader Gen. Michel Aoun.

Saudi minister broaches concessions to Iraq

Saudi Arabia has suggested Kuwait could make territorial concessions to Iraq.

Saudi Defense Minister Prince Sultan Ibn Abdul Aziz said that Arab countries were ready to grant Iraq ``all its rights'' but added that they remained firm about Iraq's unconditional withdrawal from Kuwait.

Saudi Arabia ``sees no harm in any Arab country giving its Arab sister land, a site, or a position on the sea,'' the prince told Arab journalists in Riyadh on Sunday.

His remarks contrasted with Riyadh's previous harsh criticism of Iraq.
