Sa’ad Al-Hariri rejects sanctions against Syria

October 27th, 2005 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Sa’ad Al-Hariri says he is opposed to sanctions being imposed on Syria for the murder of his father Rafiq Al-Hariri.

It will add to the growing crucendo of voices against the threat of sanctions: yesterday Russia and the Arab League spoke out in the strongest terms against sanctions.

And now, possibly the most morally powerful voice has condemned the US-UK-France plan to threaten Syria.

“I am not in favour of sanctions against Syria,” Saad Hariri said, “We are friends of the people of Syria. Lebanon and Syria have had a very long historic friendship and we’d like to keep it this way.”

He said he was happy with the way the investigation was going.

    he has always insisted to reassure the syrian people…the target is the mafioso regime not the people.that’s why he called for an international tribunal.

    Yes we all agree on this point, economical sanctions are counter-productive.
