BEIRUT: The UN Security Council's 15-member states issued a presidential statement Tuesday once again demanding that Syria withdraw its troops from Lebanon, and requested a report by the UN Secretary General every six months on the two countries' compliance.
Syria, EU finally ink trade, political agreement
Syria formally initialled an association agreement with the EU that commits both sides to work toward free trade and increase efforts to stamp out terrorism and weapons of mass destruction.
Syria was the only Mediterranean country in the EU's "Barcelona process," launched in 1995 aiming to bolster trade and political ties in the region, not to have concluded an association agreement.
The issue of the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction had until now hampered a closure to the accord.
Syria remains the object of international suspicion, most notably in Washington, for its military and political involvement in Lebanon and alleged support for terrorism.
EU External Relations Commissioner Chris Patten said relations with Syria were improving but added: "We're still in a position where we don't see eye to eye on everything."

The UN also demands Israel withdraw from the West Bank - Gaza and the Golan and Turkish troops to leave Northern Cyprus....
Dang it. And if they don't, we know the UN will call out their spitball cannons. Dang.
Hope about we get Syria and Iran to remove their troops, oops, the "insurgents", from Iraq?
A report every 6 months - and after 10 - 12 bad reports???
"alleged support for terrorism"?
Didn't Hamas have a storefront in downtown Damascus? I seem to remember the Israelis taking it out.
Then they get a sternly worded letter.
Nonetheless, as the Maronites say: St. Rafqa, pray for us.
They're doing the best they can to take away one of our excuses for going into Syria.
EU, France, UN running interference for islamist terrorists and their sponsor states, as usual.
Or the comfy chair. I say give 'em the comfy chair. That'll larn 'em.
Best of all, maybe they can make some sort of Oil for Food arrangement if they stonewall long enough. Or failing that, sex for food. The UN is good at that.
Ohhh scary! If you don't listen to us we will send Hans Blix. And when he swims with the sharks we send you another angry letter.
Sorry saw TeamAmerica today and I just can't take anything serious since.
Axis of Evil Weasels BTTT
And I thought I was harsh and cruel. Jeeez. :O)
UN the small yapping annoying dog with a big important label and no bite.
Get ready Syria, Iran, N. Korea. We here in FR are all praying for the re-election of GWB. You can run for a little while longer but you can't hide for very much longer.
That was great, wasn't it?
I still can't get that "AMERICA--F YEAH!" song outta my head.
I almost fell on the floor laughing when they played the slow version of the song...
The best part of this movie was the songs...not one was bad.
In other words, President Bush's foreign policy is having the desired effect. Very effective FP: "Attack us and we'll kill you." Even a eurocrat can understand that.
It goes on your permanent record.
Chirac just wants another country to sell illegal weapons to. They have lost a great deal of money in arms trading since Saddam has been jailed and Bin Laden has been in a cave. I kinda feel sorry for the French (NOT!)
"Minister Farouq Sharaa, currently in Brussels: "Our position remains as it was. We think 1559 is illegal intervention in Syrian-Lebanese bilateral relations.""
Syria has the same "bilateral relations" with Lebanon as Nazi Germany had with Poland. I wish I could wipe the smirk from these people's faces. Let Freedom Reign!
ROTFLOL!! Which MEANS NOTHING!!!
... or they'l draft an angry letter to Bashir Assad!
Unleash the panthers! LOL
