The Mustaqbal Movement praised on Friday the Syrian National Council’s open letter to the Lebanese people, especially regarding its proposal to review Lebanese-Syrian agreements and demarcate the border between the two countries.
It said in a statement: “The council’s brave step will pave the way for a new chapter of ties between Lebanon and Syria.”
“These ties will properly reflect the fraternal relationship between the countries,” it added.
The council’s initiative focused on bolstering political ties, based on diplomatic standards and in a manner that respects the interests of both sides, it continued.
“The movement voices its complete support for the Syrian people’s choices in its pursuit for freedom and democracy,” it stated.
“The Syrian National Council placed the ties between the two countries on the right track … which may pave the way for the construction of ties that are based on joint interests,” added the Mustaqbal statement.
The Council stressed on Wednesday that it seeks to establish strong ties between Syria and Lebanon that respect the sovereignty and independence of each country.
It said in an open letter to the Lebanese people: “To this end, the Lebanese-Syrian Higher Council should be dissolved and agreements between the two countries should be revised.”
“The revision should establish new agreements that take into consideration the interests of both states,” it continued.
The council said that these goals can be achieved once the Syrian revolution is successful and the ruling regime is overthrown.
