Germany to provide modern project to monitor Lebanese-Syrian border
font size    

German Deputy Interior Minister August Hanning has said his country would set up a "modern" project to monitor the Lebanese-Syrian border in north Lebanon, The Daily Star newspaper reported on Tuesday.

"This project will be very developed and modern and is aimed at showing the Lebanese how to monitor the border in a good way," Hanning was quoted as saying.

Hanning made the remarks after meeting with Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora on Monday, in the presence of several Lebanese officials including Interior Minister Hassan Sabaa and head of the Internal Security Forces Ashraf Rifi.

"The project will focus currently on the land border and will partly include sea border," Hanning said, adding that the Rafik Hariri International Airport in Beirut will be included later.

Syria has been accused of backing Lebanese Hezbollah and smuggling weapon to the Shiite group which conflicted with Israel last summer.

The Lebanese opposition, led by Hezbollah, launched an open- ended sit-in in downtown Beirut on Dec. 1, 2006 in a bid to topple Prime Minister Fouad Siniora's government and form a national unity cabinet that would give them veto power.
