Lebanese MPs try to foil PM’s visit to Syria

August 4th, 2005 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Some Lebanese MPs have been accused of trying to sabotage Fuad Siniora’s recent visit to Damascus.

During that trip, he was able to patch up the relationship, and re-open the border after Syria restricted access on the Damascus-Beirut highway – they sited security reasons.

But some Lebanese MPs would have profited from continuing tension in the cross-border relationship. But the winner is clearly Siniora, and those calling for good relations with their eastern neighbour.
