  • [01] Socialist Int'l seeks peace in Lebanon

    The Socialist International wants to see peace in strife-torn Lebanon, the organisation's president, George Papandreou, said in Beirut on Saturday.

    "What's happening today in Lebanon is of concern to the world community, especially the Socialist International," Papandreou, also head of Greece's Panhellenic Socialist Movement, told the start of a conference held by the group.

    "We are here to express our support for the victims of murderous attacks, and for all who had the courage to come out and speak in current conditions...The answer is not to be found in arms or violence. We must work more for stability in Lebanon, for a solution to the Palestinian issue," he stated.

    Conference delegates from more than 20 countries met to identify the situation in Lebanon and release a resolution that will back efforts by the government and the March 14th movement to find Rafik Hariri's killers and de-escalate tension in the country.

    Attending the meeting chaired by Papandreou were Hariri's son, Saad; Wallid Jumblatt, leader of the Progressive Socialist Party and of the Druze; Ishmael Gemayel, son of a murdered deputy; and Lebanon's social affairs minister, Neila Mawad.
