  • Description

    Syrian President Hafez Al-Assad discussed the Lebanese crisis in Damascus on Sunday (7 December) with members of the Lebanese consciousness Movement, which represents the Moslem faction.

    On the Previous day, the syrian leader received Mr. Pierre Gemayel, leader of the rightist Falangist Movement, representing the Christian faction.

    Heading the Consciousness movement was ex-Prime Minister Dr. Abdallah Yafi. Two other former Prime Ministers were in the delegation.

    The meeting took place against a background of a sudden deterioration in the crisis situation in Lebanon. The country has been plagued by civil war for eight months, during which time at least 4,000 people have been killed.

    President Assad has received several delegations to discuss the troubled situation in neighbouring Lebanon. At the beginning of the month, the special French envoy, M. Maurice Couve de Murville, visited Syria for talks on the situation, after a fact-finding tour of Lebanon.
