  • Description

    The Syrian President, Hafiz al-Assad, had talks on the Lebanese crisis with the Syrian Baathist National Progressive Front leadership in Damascus on Wednesday (7 July).

    SYNOPSIS: The meeting took place amid continuing moves in Arab capitals to find a solution to the civil war. No official communique was issued on the talks between President al-Assad and the Baathist leadership, but Reuters said that the Syrian leader briefed Baathist officials on the latest Syrian moves in the war zone. President al-Assad has been under pressure from the Arab League to withdraw his forces from Lebanon.

    Syria has said it will withdraw its troops. However, the joint Palestine-Lebanese leftist command claims Syrian troops are still fighting in Lebanon in support of right-wing Christians there. Meanwhile, there has been increased diplomatic activity in Damascus with fresh efforts to find a peaceful solution to the civil war.
