Syria and the US working together
"The regional security officer at the American embassy in Damascus is working closely with the Syrian officials that will facilitate the investigation". That's from tate Department spokeswoman Nancy Beck.
The US is sending a team of FBI agents to Damascus to investigate last week's attack on the US Embassy. And they have the full support of Syria - a Syrian team will work alongside the Americans.
Beck said she was satisfied with the Syrian co-operation in the investigation so far. Last week Condoleeza Rice thanked Syria for their help in thwarting the attack.
Is this the start of a blossoming friendship? There were many who feared Rice's warm words were a one-day wonder.
