There was a moment of silence in the parliament to honor his passing at the age of 69.

(nat sound)


Hundreds gathered outside the presidential palace, their sorrow as real their uncertainty over what was to come.

SOT: Clovis Maksoud/Former League of Arab States/UN Ambassador

"It is a definite loss for Syria. He presents and articulates the consistency of Syria's traditional policy of assuming responsibilities for Arab's national causes.
Assad seized control of Syria in a bloodless coup in in 1970, and went on to rule with an iron fist. His country's relative poverty compared to oil-rich neighbors did little to diminish Assad's dreams of uniting the Arab world, a world free of Israel. But after military defeat by Israel and the fall of Assad's main backer, the Soviet Union, he turned to peace talks with one reaming superpower.
President Clinton met with Assad back in March, in what appeared to be a positive step toward a Syrian-Israel peace deal, but those talks failed, Syria unable to secure a complete return of the captured Golan Heights.

SOT Clinton I regret that peace was not achieved in his lifetime and I

hope that it can still be achieved in no small measure because of the commitment he made.
Assad's son, Bashar is his likely successor, if the relatively inexperienced politician can win the army to his side, and keep his father's enemies at bay.
