Bush Calls for UN Action on Syria
President Bush has called for an emergency session of the United Nations to deal with Syria’s involvement in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
President George W. Bush on Friday called on the United Nations to convene a session as soon as possible to deal with a U.N. investigative report implicating Syrian officials in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. “The report strongly suggests that the politically motivated assassination could not have taken place without Syrian involvement,” Bush said after helping dedicate a new pavilion at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Southern California.
I wouldn’t hold my breath for serious action from the UN, a near oxymoron. One would think, too, this a matter for the Security Council rather than the General Assembly.
