Mansour Stresses Respect for Lebanese-Syrian Agreements

Lebanese Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour has stressed upon his return from Doha the importance of respect for agreements signed between Lebanon and Syria.

In remarks to As Safir daily published Tuesday, Mansour said he would return to Cairo on Wednesday to participate in the extraordinary meeting of the Arab League’s initiative committee to solve the situation in Syria.

The roadmap calls for tanks to be withdrawn from Syrian streets and for talks between the embattled regime of President Bashar Assad and its opponents.

The peace plan also calls for dialogue to take place in Cairo between Syrian regime officials and opposition figures.

The Syrian delegation left Doha without making any statements after Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem held talks with Qatari emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani.

Mansour told As Safir that he too met with Muallem who informed him that Syria will study the initiative and give the appropriate response.

The Lebanese FM also discussed with Qatar’s emir bilateral ties and the situation in Syria.
