BEIRUT: Syrian Ambassador Ali Abdel-Karim Ali stressed Wednesday the need to implement agreements signed with Lebanon concerning arms smuggling and infiltration across the border.

Ali’s comments were made following a meeting with Prime Minister Najib Mikati at the Grand Serail in Downtown Beirut.

The two men discussed various aspects of bilateral relations as well as the latest developments in Lebanon.

“The meeting focused on the need to implement the agreements signed between Syria and Lebanon, in terms of border control, putting an end to the infiltration of gunmen, the phenomenon of extremism, and preventing [verbal] attacks on Syria through this brotherly state [Lebanon],” Ali told reporters following the meeting.

Ali said Mikati vowed to foil campaigns against Syria, including the smuggling of arms and the infiltration of militants across the border.
