Lebanese Président Michel Sleiman visits the U.S.

28Sep08

On Thursday, Lebanese President Michel Sleiman met with US President George W. Bush and other US officials. Sleiman also delivered a speech before the UN General Assembly earlier this week.

The Lebanese president told his fellow citizens that Lebanese emigrants should defend their country’s cause and do their best to serve their nation.

Sleiman said that he came to the US to garner support to prevent the resettlement of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.

“I also asked US officials to provide the Lebanese Armed Forces with the necessary support to help it fight terrorism, face Israel (?), and protect Lebanese citizens,” he said.

As for “Lebanese-Syrian ties, they should be based on honesty and friendship rather than lies.”
Meanwhile, the Future Movement, Hizbullah, and the Amal Movement started at 11 p.m. on Friday to remove political posters and banners from Beirut with the assistance of the Internal Security Forces (ISF).  News reports said Hariri and Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah were likely to meet in the next 24 or 48 hours.

Also on Friday, the Maronite League continued efforts aimed at reconciling rival Christian leaders as a league delegation visited MP Nayla Mouawad and National Liberal Party leader Dori Chamoun. The same delegation, which was headed by Maronite League chief Joseph Tarabay, paid visits earlier this week to Aoun, Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea, and former President Amin Gemayel.
