March 14 Officials Hold Consultative Meeting on Hizbullah Role in Syria

March 14 alliance leaders held a consultative meeting on Thursday night to discuss a memo they plan to refer to President Michel Suleiman on Hizbullah's involvement in Syria's war, An Nahar daily reported.

The newspaper said Friday that the memo had received the final approval of all parties that make up the March 14 coalition.

An Nahar said last week that the document addresses the Arab countries and the international community, saying the majority of Lebanese reject Hizbullah's fighting alongside regime troops in Syria.

The memo also criticizes caretaker Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour, saying he neither represents Lebanon nor the foreign ministry. It accuses him of being a Hizbullah complicit.

The March 14 leaders discussed during their meeting on Thursday a plan to confront Hizbullah's involvement in Syria's crisis and the air raids carried out by Syrian helicopters on the Lebanese border town of Arsal, An Nahar said.

They also discussed ways to express solidarity with the family of Hashem Salman, the head of the student committee of the Lebanese Option Party, who was killed last Sunday during a protest near the Iranian embassy in Beirut's southern suburbs.

Salman died when Hizbullah members wielding batons assaulted the protesters in the Bir Hassan neighborhood.
