After years of waiting…
The EU has made an offer to Syria – work constructively in Lebanon, and your international isolation will end.
An EU spokesman made the announcement as EU Foreign Policy chief Javier Solana met Bashar Al-Assad in Damascus.
Today’s meeting ends the EU’s two-year long ban on high-level talks. It started after the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Al-Hariri. France blamed Syria, and blocked any contact.
Solana will hold a press conference soon – full details later. One important question – Solana has offered to end Syria’s international isolation, but does that include America.
