Lebanon Watch- Mansour Calls For a 'United Stance to Confront Aggression against Syria' http://www.naharnet.com/stories/en/97368-mansour-calls-for-a-united-stance-to-confront-aggression-against-syria
Caretaker Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour defended the Syrian regime on Monday and called on all Arab states to unite their stances and reject a U.S.-led military strike against Syria, the state-run National News Agency reported. “All Arab countries must take a unified stance to confront an aggression against Syria because the repercussions will reflect on the entire region,” NNA quoted Mansour as saying.
Assuring that Syria does not stand alone but has friends all over the world, Mansour added: “We cannot imagine how an Arab country could possibly support an aggression against another,” stressing that a “military strike against an Arab state cannot be overlooked whatever the latter's regime and policy are.” “We cannot say that the drums of war on Syria have stopped. We have to know what the American administration wants and whether they actually want to go to war,” said the minister. He concluded: “We should wait for the results of the investigation on the use of chemical weapons and not make wild accusations.” ------------------
