Regarding the Syrian Arab movement, sources revealed that during his brief visit to Libya at the end of last week, Syrian Vice President Abdel Halim Khaddam held Libyan President Colonel Muammar Gaddafi responsible for his recent statement announcing support for General Michel Aoun’s government. In response, Gaddafi stated that his position was based on information provided by Colonel Mustafa Al-Kharroubi, the Libyan coordinator for Palestinian affairs, who received the information from Palestinian leaders. Khaddam then proceeded to explain the reality of the situation in Lebanon from the perspective of Damascus. Gaddafi assured him that he would respond and understand Syria’s role. However, Khaddam, in turn, criticized the US-Syrian agreement, highlighting that America had bombed Tripoli in the West, destroyed his house, and killed his daughter. He expressed disappointment that no Arab country had taken action or called for a summit to address the American attack on an Arab nation. Syria now seeks support through an agreement it has reached with the United States.

The sources described the meeting between Gaddafi and Khaddam as a regrettable incident that ultimately led to mutual understanding.
