Lebanon opposed to foreign attack to any Arab state: President

Beirut, Lebanese President Michel Aoun reiterated on Saturday that his country is opposed to foreign attack on any Arab state.

In a statement released by his office, he added that the attack by the US, UK and France on Syria will play no role in the settlement of the Syrian crisis which has entered its eighth year.

The attack will undermine all the efforts made to end the Syrian nation's plights, he said, noting that Lebanon sees recent developments as the big countries' willingness to engage in the crisis.

Recent developments will put the region in a critical situation and making dialogues difficult, Aoun said, describing dialogue as a necessity for putting an end to foreign intervention and restoring stability.

The US, UK and France attacked Syria with over 100 missiles in response to alleged chemical attack.

Western nations, particularly France, the United States, and the United Kingdom, have blamed the forces of Syrian President Bashar Assad for the attack, but he has denied the accusations of having attacked civilians using chemical weapons in Duma.
