The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic closely follows the situation in Lebanon. In accordance with the Lebanese people and international community will, the MFA demands a complete withdrawal of all foreign military troops and secret services from the country. The fulfilment of the UN Security Council Resolution n.1559 and a regular organisation of coming elections are necessary conditions to achieve real independence and sovereignty of Lebanon. The MFA of the CR does not consider the transfer of troops to the Bikká valley and the Syrian border, announced by Syria, a sufficient measure.

The MFA believes, that the process of political stabilisation in Lebanon will continue in political and diplomatic negotiations and that all parties involved will avoid any violent provocation, which could affect efforts of the Lebanese people to achieve peace and freedom.
