Saqr: Syria Will Make an Apology after the Announcement of the Indictment

MP Oqab Saqr noted Wednesday that whenever attempts are made to improve ties with Syria, there are some sides that try to thwart these efforts.

He told LBC that once the relationship between Prime Minister Saad Hariri and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad improved, the premier apologized for mistakes made against Syria after the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

"Syria will make an apology of its own once the indictment is announced," he stressed.

"Assad himself said that Syria had committed errors in Lebanon and Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem recognized the existence of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon," the MP continued.

Saqr called for putting an end to debates over false witnesses in the case.

In addition, the MP urged Hizbullah to take Hariri's recent positions into consideration, saying that the lack of an indictment does not favor the party because the indictment itself will only prove that the party was not involved in the assassination.
