UN says Syria is co-operating with the Hariri investigation

UN investigator Serge Brammertz has published his long-awaited report into the Hariri killing.

Although he has avoided naming a perpetrator, he says that Syria's co-operation is 'generally satisfactory'. Previous reports condemned Syria for obstructing the UN and for lying to officials.

This time, they did things differently - Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad agreed to be interviewed, as did Foreign Minister Farouq Ash-Sharaa.

The country faced the prospect of international sanctions if they were seen to be blocking the UN inquiry.

UPDATE: The full Brammertz report is available here. Comments on Syria's co-operation are on page 23 (near the bottom).

THat is another year of keeping Syria ander scrutiny and it is all because of the traiters Lebanese i think it is time for Syria to declare Lebanon as an enemy state untill yhere is change in their goverment.
