Lebanon refuses to impose Arab League Syria sanctions

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2011-11-28

Lebanon said Monday it will not implement Arab League sanctions on its neighbour Syria, after a raft of targeted economic sanctions against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad were approved at the weekend.

REUTERS - Lebanon will not implement the Arab League's economic sanctions against Syria, Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour told Reuters on Monday, because it had not agreed to them and believed they could hurt Lebanon.

"We do not agree with these sanctions and we will not go along with them," Mansour said.
