Visiting Arab League chief Amr Moussa said on Wednesday that Syria reasserted full cooperation with a UN probe into the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
"It has been confirmed once again not only desire but Syria's stance on full cooperation with investigations led by Detlev Mehlis," Moussa told reporters after meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Foreign Minister Farouk al-Shara.
"The Syrian government will cooperate, because it is in its interests and in the interests of all parties, that the truth is unveiled clearly," Moussa said.
Moussa also denied that he had received any proposal to question Syrian officials in Cairo over their alleged role in the killing of Hariri.
Moussa also denied that the Arab League will send observers when Syrian officers are questioned by the investigation team.
According to the official SANA news agency, Assad and Moussa
called for Arab solidarity to deal with pressure that Syria is facing.
Syria is facing mounting international pressure following an interim report by chief UN investigator Mehlis which implicated involvement of Syrian and Lebanese officials in the killing of Hariri in a car bomb blast in the Lebanese capital of Beirut on Feb. 14.
Syria has denied any involvement and dismissed the report as politically motivated.
The UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution on Oct. 31, asking Syria to fully cooperate with the UN probe or face possible "further action."
