Desk Officer Muhammad Ayab February 28, stressing the need for
positive movement to facilitate Lebanese presidential elections,
early Arab League recognition of Kosovo's independence and
pressuring Syria to take active steps to prevent foreign
fighters from transiting its territory en route to Iraq. Ayab

He said the GOL would refrain from any public statement on
Kosovo's independence until the Arab League had made clear its
position. (Comment: We have also heard that the GOL was
waiting for the Organization of Islamic Conferences to pronounce
on Kosovo. End comment.) Any further substantive response will
