Jordan supports Lebanese PM's seven-point plan
font size    

Jordanian King Abdullah II on Saturday voiced his support to a seven-point plan put forward by Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora to end the conflict between Lebanon's Hezbollah and Israel.

In a telephone conversation with Siniora, Abdullah condemned Israeli attacks and "massacres" against the Lebanese people, describing the attacks as "flagrant violation of all humanitarian principles, ethical norms and international covenants".

Siniora proposed a seven-point plan at an international conference on the Lebanon crisis in Rome on July 26.

The plan envisages a ceasefire and an exchange of prisoners as well as sending the Lebanese army into south Lebanon.

The king expressed Jordan's keenness to coordinate the Arab stands and reaffirmed that Jordan would continue exerting efforts to find a solution to the crisis.

Siniora, for his part, expressed appreciation for all forms of political and humanitarian support provided by Jordan to Lebanon in these difficult circumstances.

Some 900 Lebanese have been killed and a quarter of Lebanon's population displaced since Israel launched a massive assault on Lebanese Hezbollah on July 12 in retaliation for the abduction of two Israeli soldiers by the Shiite group in a cross-border raid.
