Syrian PM praises Lebanon’s Baath Party
A+ A-

BEIRUT: Syria’s prime minister praised Thursday the Lebanese Baath Party’s role in “standing up to occupation of parts of Lebanon.”

According to a party statement, Baalbek-Hermel MP Assem Qanso, a senior Baath Party official in Lebanon, led a delegation to Damascus for a meeting with Prime Minister Wael Halqi.

The statement said, “[Lebanon’s] Baath leadership stands by Syria’s leadership and people against the conspiracy hatched against it by a number of regional and Arab states.”

For his part, Halqi hailed the contribution of the Baath Party to resistance against the Israeli occupation of Lebanon, saying that “its cadres confronted attempts by the Zionist enemy to occupy parts of Lebanon.”

The statement said Halqi also highlighted the role of Arab nationalist parties in confronting Zionist and U.S. designs. Qanso also had a meeting with Abdullah alAhmar, a senior Baath Party official in Syria.
