Arab League chief continues mediation among Lebanese politicians
font size    

Arab League (AL) Secretary General Amr Moussa on Wednesday continued his talks with Lebanese rival leaders, aiming at resolving the political standoff in the country.

"Time was running out for Lebanon but the door is still open for a last minute solution," Moussa told reporters after meeting Lebanese President Emile Lahoud.

"There are difficulties, but they are not insurmountable," he added.

Moussa said Lahoud had expressed support to the current mission of the Arab League delegation in Lebanon and the League's work in general.

The delegation flew into Lebanon on Tuesday and met on the same day with Lebanese Speaker Nabih Berri, Prime Minister Fouad Seniora and Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblatt.

Later on Wednesday, Moussa conferred with army chief Brigadier General Michel Sleiman and lawmaker Saad Hariri, head of the pro- Siniora majority bloc in parliament.

The AL delegation included representatives for Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Tunisia.

Last week Arab foreign ministers decided in Cairo to send a delegation to Beirut to urge the feuding Lebanese political factions to return to negotiations, following the June 13 murder of lawmaker Walid Eido in Beirut.
