Aoun: Lebanon Refuses All Forms of Aggression against Arab States

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

After the Western strike on Syria at dawn on Saturday, President Michel Aoun said the attack "will not contribute" to a political solution for the Syrian crisis, stressing that Lebanon “refuses hostility against Arab states no matter what the reasons were.”

“What happened in Syria today at dawn doesn’t contribute to finding a political solution for the Syrian crisis. Dialogue is necessary to stop deterioration, and end outside interference that have further complicated the crisis,” the Presidency media office quoted Aoun on Twitter.

The President added: “Lebanon refuses attacks at any Arab state no matter what the reasons were. The latest developments in Syria will only involve world powers in the Syrian crisis.”

The United States, Britain and France carried out a wave of punitive strikes against Bashar Assad's Syrian regime on Saturday in response to alleged chemical weapons attacks that President Donald Trump branded the "crimes of a monster."

The strikes hit three targets near Damascus -- a scientific research center, a storage facility and command post -- and a chemical weapons storage facility near Homs.

Syrian surface to air missile batteries had attempted to fire back, but there were no initial reports of allied losses, reports said.

Syrian state media said air defenses were activated to block the attack as it published images of smoke clouds hanging over the capital.

The President added: “Lebanon refuses attacks at any Arab state no matter what the reasons were.

Even if a dictator is killing hundreds of thousands of his own people and using chemical weapons.....?

Couldn't keep his mouth shut....!

أدانت وزارة الخارجية والمغتربين القصف الصاروخي والغارات الجوية اللذين تعرضت لهما الجمهورية العربية السورية، ويمثلان إعتداءً صارخاً على سيادة دولة عربية شقيقة وانتهاكاً للمواثيق والأعراف الدولية.

والحري كان إجراء تحقيق دولي شفاف وموضوعي من قبل الوكالة الدولية لحظر الأسلحة الكيماوية، ومن ثم استصدار قرار أممي شرعي عن المؤسسات الدولية قبل تنفيذ أي ضربة عسكرية.

مع الإشارة إلى أن موقف لبنان المبدئي كان ولا يزال مع حظر استعمال السلاح الكيماوي من أي جهة وضرورة معاقبة مستعمليه، وكذلك منع استخدام وامتلاك كافة أنواع اسلحة الدمار الشامل لا سيما السلاح النووي والذي تملكه اسرائيل تحديداً، ومنع استعماله في أي نزاع عسكري.

However, Russian and Iranian aggression against the Syrian people is not condemned by our "iranian-Syrian" Foreign Minister nor by his father in law.

Lol too true TPat I am sure that his voice was heard in all the "corners" of this globe lol

He is but a quisling for Syria and Iran and should not to forget to mention that Russia in his conversation. Russia has not only supplied arms but has been pivotal in the slaughter in Syria, but that ok if Russia kills arabs? Simply Russia has been selling the Arabs arms as an alternative cheap source for them to revolt and kill each other rather than use that force on Israel. Clown is his masters voice and fools no one but those who idolize him. History has never been good to this quisling and years from now many of you youth on this site here will be saying we remember the opportunities and life's this so called leader wasted.

الحريري: "حزب الله" لا يزال ملتزما بالتسوية الأخيرة وانا التزم النأي بالنفس ولولا ذلك لكنت اتخذت موقفا من قتل الأطفال بالكيميائي.۔

What this traitor is actually saying is because of the deal I made with the terror group that allows me to be Prime Minister I have refrained from condemning the war crimes committed by Assad and his use of chemical weapons against children. This statement will haunt him forever!

Amazing: Lebanon is fighting alongside Assad, and Aoun is against outside "outside interference?"
