All quotes by Fouad Siniora on Lebanon

This was an innovative and civilised approach to try and end the violence in the region, but it depends on Israel who, until then, could only dream of such an offer. But until now Israel has done nothing, whatever the government, hawks or doves, who have been in power. They need to seize this chance so that the initiative can revive and move forwards.feedback

It is a serious mistake to accuse the tribunal of being manipulated. I think it will do its job, and it is being closely watched. Its sessions are in public, and no-one can manipulate it or divert it from its chosen course.feedback

Arabs need a relationship of equals with Iran. We don't want to be involved in Iran's internal affairs and, equally, we don't want Iran to interfere with us. We have a responsibility, and Iran even more so, to ensure our relations are between two states, and not between a state and an organisation. I don't think that is useful. Imagine that an Arab nation establishes relations with an Iranian organisation. How do you think Iran would feel about that? Would it accept it? I think not.feedback

The EU is keen to have good relations, just as Lebanon is. They are very important, as is our association agreement with the EU.feedback

We certainly can't fire off unfounded accusations. We have to wait for the conclusions of the tribunal conducting the enquiry. We place our entire trust in it, and we will be satisfied with whatever decisions it comes to.feedback

Lebanon is an Arab country, and Syria is a brother nation. We want a healthy relationship. We have achieved a lot in recent years, and Lebanon has ceaselessly reaffirmed its sovereignty without leaving the Arab fold.feedback

We believe this opening up towards Syria is important and we support it. But at the same time we want relations with Damascus to be based on trust and mutual respect. In other words, a relationship of equals. There has to be a real will to solve the unresolved problems that have hung over us for years. That is why we think that this change in tone between the US, Europe, and Syria doesn't disturb us. On the contrary.feedback

The UN's peacekeepers are welcome in Lebanon and we believe they play a vital role in keeping the peace and protecting Lebanon. In co-operation with the Lebanese army they ensure security in the border zone south of the Litani river. We are following the developments very closely, and we would like to salute the serious and constructive collaboration between our army and the UN.feedback

This party is not a Lebanese party. It is is an Iranian group which works in and from Lebanon. Therefore, contrary to all the claims Hezbollah is trying to spread among the Lebanese – that it is a resistance group – we find out now that they are putting on a different face.feedback

The ratification of the international tribunal should not be considered as a victory for one party over another Lebanese party. It is a victory for Lebanon and all Lebanese.feedback
