Neither Syria nor Lebanon should be allowed to develop into a new focus of tension in the Middle East, Egypt's foreign minister said Wednesday. "We have a difficult situation in Iraq and in the Palestinian territory," Ahmed Aboul Gheit said. "We cannot allow another hotspot of tension to develop. "Regarding the Palestinian problem, it has been a hot spot for 60 years already. You can add the situation in Iraq to that problem," he added. "We have to relieve this tension at some point because the Middle East needs stability, development and peace ...stability and peace will naturally lead to a change in the relationship of the Islamic Arabic world with the West."
