Berri: full independence within grasp

Lebanon's Parliamentary Speaker Nabih Berri has announced the establishment of a Lebanese Embassy in Damascus, and a Syrian Embassy in Beirut.

It would be the final step in establishing full bilateral relations, and would signal that Syria has come to accept Lebanon's full independence.

In a similar vein Berri announced that the two countries are to set up a joint negotiating committee, ready for any future peace negotiations with Israel "should the Jewish state have mercy on us". Previously Syria had negotiated on Lebanon's behalf. It is generally accepted that joint negotaitions will bring about better results than if Israel is able to play the two countries off against each other.

where di u get this news from?

OK people who cares, the lebanese think that they are capable of governing themselves so let them. I don't blame the lebanese for hating us, i mean if i were in their shoes i'd hates us too....actually im syrian and i hate us as well.

to all syrians who hate syria ,please think about what syria did for you from free education to free health care to safty and security all these things which we pay deearly for in the usa then think about the contribution that you made to syria you will find out that you owe alot to syria.
