Syria walks away

Syria's Sana news agency released this statement:

"Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Al-Mu'alem told a press conference today, January 2, that Syria had decided to stop cooperating with France on Lebanon.

"He said that the decision came in response to France's wish to blame Syria and the Lebanese opposition for the failure to find an agreed-upon solution to the Lebanon crisis.

"Al-Mu'alem was responding to French President Nicolas Sarkozy's announcement that France was suspending contacts with Syria on the issue of Lebanon."
