Lebanese Foreign Minister: Solution to Crisis in Syria Should Be an Internal Political One

Aug 15, 2012 - BEIRUT, (SANA) – The Lebanese Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour stressed that the "self-distance" policy adopted by Lebanon regarding the crisis in Syria is based on that the solution in Syria should be an internal political one.

Addressing the meeting of the foreign ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in Jeddah, Mansour said that the solution in Syria depends mainly on dialogue between the leadership and the opposition and on implementing reforms.

He stressed that the foreign interference will complicate the crisis instead of helping in solving it, adding that the flow of money and arms into Syria threatens its sovereignty, unity of its people and territorial integrity and escalates the killing and violence.

Mansour warned that the systematic media instigation, igniting religious discord and sectarianism and the continuation of violence will have serious repercussions not only on Syria's people and land but also on the security and stability of all the countries in the region.

The Lebanese Foreign Minister reiterated Lebanon's stance on the Syrian issue included in the concluding statement of the 4th Extraordinary Islamic Summit Conference on suspending Syria's membership, distancing itself from the decision on it.

He hoped that Syria will come out of the crisis soon and restore its national and Islamic role.

Mansour criticized the concluding statement for not including a firm decision on ending and suspending all forms of political, trade and economic cooperation with the Israeli enemy and exerting practical pressure on it through tightening the economic boycott.
