Lebanon saw strong support at the Arab summit in Kuwait, senior political sources told The Daily Star.Sources stressed that the formation of Tammam Salam's government greatly encouraged international and Arab support, as a legitimate executive authority now exists in Lebanon to receive aid pledges during international and Arab donor conferences, specifically the upcoming Rome conference to support the Lebanese Army.The Arab summit has worked to affirm international political cover for Lebanon, the sources added, with numerous Arab presidents and monarchs, or those representing them at the summit, declaring it necessary to distance Lebanon from regional conflicts and from making alliances with rival regional players, while ensuring consensus among Lebanese politicians. This issue was also tackled behind closed doors during the Arab Summit, since Syria was an Arab country after all and Lebanon should not bear the consequences of its war alone, the source said.
