Moussa to visit Syria amid international pressure on Damascus
font size    

Arab League (AL) Secretary General Amr Moussa will pay a visit to Syria in coming days amid international pressure on Damascus over its alleged role in the slaying of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

Moussa will arrive in Damascus on Tuesday evening after a one- day visit to Saudi Arabia as part of a four-nation tour, the AL chief's spokesman Alaa Morsi told reporters Sunday.

The AL chief will also travel to Czech and Bahrain, he added.

Moussa's visit to Syria came after UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution last Monday, demanding Damascus fully cooperate with an international probe into Hariri's assassination.

The resolution, sponsored by the United States, France and Britain, said the UN Security Council would consider "further action" if Syria did not comply.

Damascus is facing mounting international pressure following an interim UN report by chief investigator Detlev Mehlis on Oct. 20, which said there was "converging evidence" of Syrian and Lebanese involvement in the killing of Hariri in a car bomb blast in Beirut on Feb. 14.

Syria has denied any involvement and dismissed the report as politically motivated, but it has since promised to cooperate with the international investigation.
