BEIRUT: President Michel Sleiman called Monday for the country's various security agencies to cooperate and work together more, saying it would help prevent the spread of terrorism.

“It is important to maintain the coordination and exchange of information between the security and military agencies to reveal the criminals plotting evil actions to target the country,” Sleiman said during talks with the head of the Army's intelligence, Brig. Gen. Edmond Fadel.

The president said such cooperation would make it easier for agencies to dismantle terrorist networks in the country and would contribute to maintaining stability.

Sleiman also stressed “the importance of the solidarity of the Lebanese against terrorist and criminal plots targeting the souls of innocent people and aiming at distorting stability.”

Lebanon has been the target of deadly blasts linked to Syria crisis, most of which have occurred in areas associated with Hezbollah. Many of the attacks have been claimed by Al-Qaeda-linked groups.

Sleiman has also met with Prime Minister Tammam Salam to talk about the Cabinet’s policy statement and the need to speed up the drafting process.

The president also met with with the head of the Loyalty to the Resistance bloc, Mohammad Raad, to discuss domestic security and political developments and the need for political forces to come together to confront the dangers threatening Lebanon.
