Pelosi receives warm welcome in Syria
April 03, 2007
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi arrived Tuesday in the Syrian capital, where she is expected to tackle an issue complicating the U.S. mission in the Middle East — Damascus’ alleged support for militants in Iraq and Lebanon.
Though her visit conjured a strong rebuke by the White House, Syria seemed to welcome the 67-year-old California Democrat.
After arriving in Damascus, Pelosi visited a centuries-old market district, where she mingled with Syrians. She also visited the Omayyad mosque in Old Damascus, which is considered one of the most sacred sites in the capital.
