Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Monday that Syrian President Bashar Assad is prepared to consider a peace agreement with Israel.

In an interview with Israel Radio, Barak said that it seems that the Syrian president is ready to consider a peace deal and that if Assad will indeed reach out to Israel regarding a peace agreement, he will find a willing partner.

On Friday, it was revealed that U.S. Senator John Kerry, the chairman of the Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee and a close associate of U.S. President Barack Obama, has been working together with Syrian President Bashar Assad over the last few months on a plan to restart negotiations between Syria and Israel.
