International Efforts To Solve Lebanon Crisis

Lebanon-MapLebanese Prime Minister Sa’d Al-Hariri yesterday arrived in Saudi Arabia for an unplanned visit after his visit to France. Then he will probably fly to the U.S. where he will hold meetings and visit Saudi King Abdallah who is there for medical treatment.

French Foreign Minister Michelle Alliot-Marie is expected to visit Lebanon.

Members of the Hizbullah reveal that France is closely following the Saudi-Syrian contacts on the issue of Lebanon. In addition Hizbullah is working with Saudi Arabia to postpone the release of the indictment in the Rafiq Al-Hariri assassination case to March 2011. In contrast, the U.S. is pushing to have it released before year end.
