Siniora pleased with Damascus meetings results
Lebanon-Syria, Politics, 8/2/2005
Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said Monday he was satisfied with the outcome of his meetings with President Bashar al-Assad and other Syrian senior officials in Damascus yesterday, informing the Lebanese Cabinet of the smooth truck traffic flow across the borders to Syria.
The movement of trucks, leaving Lebanon thru the Lebanon-Syria border, and which carry Lebanese exports and other products, had come to a near halt of the past days because of Syrian measures. Past tensions in relations between the two states had effected the traffic of these borders. Lebanon is dependent to a large extent on these border for its exports to the Arab states.
"The talks were cordial and fraternal to a great deal. They were held in an atmosphere of frankness," Siniora told a Cabinet session chaired by Lebanese President Emile Lahoud.
"The efficient flow in the movement of the trucks was evident today afternoon," Siniora said referring to the inclination to tackle all issues between the two states with "a new mentality" to activate work of joint committees and institutions.
"We stress that Lebanon will not be a base or place for any hostile act against Syria. Lebanon is committed to the Arab peace initiative and we will not resume any peace process out of this frame," Siniora added.
