Obama to send U.S. ambassador back to Syria
"All of theses talks, the quality of the discussion and the level of engagement has been unprecedented, at least for the last eight years."

President Obama has decided to send a U.S. ambassador back to Syria, a dramatic sign of reconciliation between the two countries, the State Department announced Wednesday.
Syrian Ambassador to the United States Imad Moustapha said the decision reflects the genuine desire by the United States to reverse Bush administration policy and engage Syria, which he said would be good for both nations and for the region.
