Jordan's king advised the visiting Lebanese prime minister on Sunday that all parties should cooperate with an ongoing UN investigation into a Beirut assassination last year, the official Petra news agency reported. King Abdullah II's remarks come as a new head of the UN commission into the assassination of former Premier Rafik Hariri began work in Lebanon. Syria, already implicated in the probe, has been accused of not cooperating. Abdullah expressed to Prime Minister Fuad Saniora "his desire to see differences over the Hariri investigation resolved through negotiations," Petra said. He stressed the "importance of cooperation between all concerned parties with the UN investigators." The probe has implicated Syrian security officials in Hariri's assassination last February in Beirut but Damascus has denied any involvement. UN investigators have pressed to interview Syrian President Bashar Assad and his foreign minister, Farouk al-Sharaa, though the president has indicated he would reject the requests.
