Question Taken at the May 24, 2005 Daily Press Briefing

Syria-Iraq Border

Question:   When was the last time the Syrians and US met to discuss the border military cooperation?

Answer:   Extensive Tripartite border security conversations were held in September 2004. Since that time, our Embassy in Damascus has maintained an ongoing dialogue with Syria about what actions must be taken to prevent the use of Syrian territory by those supporting the Iraqi insurgency.

We would also refer you to the Pentagon for information on its dialogue with the Government of Syria on border security.
