  • Description

    Syrian and Lebanese leaders held one day talks in the Syrian capital of Damascus on Tuesday (22 December) to try to find a solution to the civil war that has been tearing Lebanon to pieces for the past eight months.

    The Lebanese military delegation was led by Lebanese Premier Rashid Karami and the Syrians by President Hafez Al-Assad and Premier Mahmoud Al-Ayoubi.

    Earlier this month delegations from both sides of the warring factions in Lebanon visited Syria to put their sides of the conflict before Syrian leaders.

    Although there has been no official statement on the talks it is expected that Syria will try to help the Lebanese government to restore order and start a dialogue leading to reforms and a solution to Lebanon's crisis.

    Since the war started in April more than 4,000 people have died in or as a result of the fighting. Numerous ceasefires have been broken and so far repeated appeals from Lebanon's leaders for gunmen to lay down their arms have failed.
