SECRETARY OF STATE CLINTON ON LEBANON


FROM:  U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT

The Situation in Lebanon

Press Statement
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
May 25, 2012
The United States is concerned that developments in Syria are contributing to instability in Lebanon. We encourage all parties to exercise restraint and demonstrate respect for Lebanon’s security and stability, consistent with United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1559 and 1701. We call on the Syrian regime to stop the violence against its own people and fully implement the Annan Plan. The regime needs to institute a peaceful, democratic transition now. We remain committed to a unified, stable, sovereign, and independent Lebanon.
