Guardians of the Cedars - National Lebanese Movement
Central Directorate

The Central Directorate of the Party of the Guardians of the Cedars-National Lebanese Movement, held its weekly meeting and after discussing the current Lebanese social, economic and political problems issued the following communiqué:

The shuttle diplomacy towards Lebanon and the region has recently taken a serious upturn with the object of promoting the peace process. In this respect, we believe that the following observations are pertinent:

  1. Syria is the only obstacle facing the peace process by supporting, in the so-called "Arab" countries, organizations that oppose peace with Israel;
  2. Syria prevents Lebanon from following a separate track in the peace process, because it holds complete sway over his political decision by threatening at any moment to stir again terrorist operations, leading to large scale military operations and even massacres;
  3. The only possible solution is to put an end to Syrian tutelage of the Lebanese political decision, the deployment of the Lebanese army in the South and throughout Lebanese territory and the unconditional application of UNSC. 520;
  4. The Central Directorate of the Party, after appraising the intervention of our comrade Carol Etienne Sakr on the MTV, approves it unreservedly and congratulates her for her insight.

And finally, we reiterate our motto:
War does not end when the people are tired, but when they are victorious!

At the Service of Lebanon,
Abu Arz,
Etienne Sakr
