TROOPS IN LEVANT
Syria Hopes Foreigners Will Withdraw CO-OPERATION AGAINST JAPS Rec. 12.30 p.m. LONDON, July 20. "I hope all foreign troops not required for the prosecution of the war against Japan will be withdrawn from the Levant by the late summer," said the Syrian Prime Minister, M. Khoury, who recently returned from San Francisco, in an interview with Reuters Damascus correspondent. He added this would set the seal on the independence of Syria and Lebanon. Both countries were at war with Japan and would allow their territories to be used as lines of communication. They would in this be helping the war against Japan on a full partnership basis.
M. Khoury, discussing the final settlement with the French, said Syria was determined to be just and fair, even liberal, in compensation for damage to buildings and installations and loss of life in the recent troubles would have to be taken into consideration.
