Arab ministers reaffirm support to Lebanon

posted on 22/08/2006: 686 views


Cairo - Arab foreign ministers concluded their extraordinary meeting on Monday by re-affirming solidarity with Lebanon and renewing support to the Lebanese government. During the meeting, chaired by UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Arab ministers paid tribute to Lebanon's steadfastness in resisting the Israeli aggression.



The ministers welcomed Lebanese government's decision to deploy its army in the south of the country, urging friendly countries to contribute to the United Nations' Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL). They called on the UN Security Council to press Israel to lift its air, land and sea siege on Lebanon, to adhere to the ceasefire and to withdraw its troops beyond the Blue Line.



The meeting reiterated support to Lebanon's seven-point plan and urged the UN secretary General to consider those proposals.



The ministers blamed Israel for the aggression and its consequences and targeting of civilians, describing it as a naked violation of the international law. They held Israel responsible for compensating Lebanon for the causalities and for damaging the country's infrastructure, as well as economic losses.



They also welcomed a resolution by the Human Rights Council which condemned Israeli violations and called for a probe. The ministers thanked the countries that pledged support to the re-construction efforts. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
