CBNNew.com - DAMASCUS, Syria - Syrian President Bashar Assad admitted Monday that no agreement exists on an Israeli withdrawal from the Golan Heights.

Last month, Assad told a Qatari journalist that Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert promised a full Israeli withdrawal from the Golan in exchange for a peace treaty with Syria. According to Assad, Olmert extended his personal promise on the deal.

During a press conference Monday in the Persian Gulf, Assad said Syria and Israel "resumed the talks on the Golan Heights and now we are waiting for Israel's response, but Israel should bear in mind that Syria will not compromise on the issue of the Golan."

Meanwhile, Syria has agreed to allow UN inspectors at the site destroyed by an Israeli air strike last September.

The IAEA -- -- added Syria to their list of countries suspected of nuclear proliferation after Washington turned over secret documentation showing that Syria was building a nuclear reactor at the site.
