Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy reached broad agreement on future diplomatic steps to curb Syrian interference in Lebanon, the State Department said Wednesday. The two diplomats discussed the Lebanon question at a dinner Tuesday night in New York. "I think there was a real convergence of views on the issue," department spokesman Sean McCormack said. He said the United States hopes for quick approval of a new UN Security Council resolution on Lebanon, which probably would urge Syria to open diplomatic relations with Lebanon.
