Lebanon PM objects rearming Hizbullah
Lebanon's Premier Fouad Saniora warned against rearming Hizbullah, saying it would not help in "settling problems, or even establishing control over Lebanon." "This is what Hizbullah would notice," Saniora told the Financial Times.
Meanwhile, the Lebanese leader declared support for "excellent relations with Syria" and said Lebanon is ready for "security cooperation with Syria as two adult brothers, based on respect for Lebanon's independence and sovereignty." Saniora said whoever wins the 2009 parliamentary elections "should rule the country."
