A Lebanese political leader, sought by a Syrian military court over accusations he urged the US to invade Syria, accused Damascus on Sunday of delaying a solution for its contentious border area with Israel and Lebanon. "Syria, until now, has only shown theoretical readiness to draw the borders in the Chebaa Farms, but there is nothing workable on the ground," Walid Jumblatt told reporters after meeting with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
