BEIRUT: Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour Wednesday returned to Lebanon from Cairo, where he had been taking part in the Arab foreign ministers meeting and the European-Arab ministerial summit, according to the National News Agency. “Lebanon participated at the Arab League in two meetings on Nov. 12 and 13. The first meeting was that of the Arab foreign ministers where Lebanon chaired the session and where many issues were tackled, on top of which was the Israeli aggression on Sudan and the forthcoming conference in Helsinki, as well as the Syrian and Palestinian dossiers,” Mansour said upon his arrival at Rafik Hariri International Airport. “On the Palestinian dossier, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas told attendees that Palestine would be bidding for a U.N. nonmember state status,” he said. Lebanon did not, however, take part in the Syrian meetings, due to the government’s policy of disassociation, he added. “As for Sudan, the meeting condemned the Israeli aggression on the military factory in Khartoum.” Mansour said he participated in the meetings of the European-Arab conference, with more than 20 foreign ministers attending. “This meeting was fruitful on the level of boosting the relations between the European Union and the Arab world.”
