Lebanese MPs try to foil PM's visit to Syria

Some Lebanese MPs have been accused of trying to sabotage Fuad Siniora's recent visit to Damascus.

During that trip, he was able to patch up the relationship, and re-open the border after Syria restricted access on the Damascus-Beirut highway - they sited security reasons.

But some Lebanese MPs would have profited from continuing tension in the cross-border relationship. But the winner is clearly Siniora, and those calling for good relations with their eastern neighbour.

syria should have good relation with lebanon and lebanon should know that sanctions against syria will translate into sanction against lebanon especialy if lebanon is helping in the sanctions against syria and inticing the west against syria.
