Syria agrees to peace talks with Israel

After seven years of asking, Israel finally agreed to launch peace talks with Syria. Israel made the offer to Damascus, and Syria's deputy Foreign Minister Ahmed Arnous has unsurprisingly said yes:

"Syria is prepared to renew talks based upon the land for peace principle, without preconditions, to bring about stability and security in the region ... President Assad is perfectly straightforward regarding Syria's aspirations to renew negotiations based on the rubrics of the Madrid Conference."

This will lead to nothing but a MEDIA CIRCUS as it already is.
Both countries are trying to win the PR campaign and this will end up in a deadlock or war.
