Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero held talks Saturday with Prime Minister Fuad Saniora on Lebanon's deepening political crisis, which has produced a vacuum in the presidency. Zapatero, who arrived here earlier Saturday on a previously unannounced visit, also traveled to southern Lebanon where he inspected his country's troops serving with the UN peacekeeping force overseeing a truce along the Lebanese-Israeli border. During the 45-minute meeting at Beirut airport, Saniora briefed Zapatero on "the situation in Lebanon and the continued vacuum in the presidency post," the state-run National News Agency reported.
