Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan arrived in Lebanon on
Wednesday and suggested that the UN tribunal investigating the
assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri should
postpone releasing its findings for one year, Israel Radio reported.
Erdogan stated that during this one year period, regional players could
act to settle other crises in the area, such as the conflict between
Fatah and Hamas, and tension between some Arab states and Iran.
According to the Israel Radio report, upon landing in Beirut on
Wednesday, Erdogan was met by hundreds of Armenian demonstrators,
protesting Turkey's lack of acknowledgment of the alleged Armenian
genocide in the early 20th century.
