Lebanon's President Michel Suleiman said he is using quiet diplomacy to try to resolve a dispute over allegations by officials in Egypt that Hizbullah plotted attacks there, pan-Arab daily al-Hayat reported Saturday. Egypt announced earlier this month that it had uncovered a plot by 49 men with links to Hizbullah to destabilize the country by carrying out attacks on Egyptian institutions and Israeli tourists. In an interview published Saturday, Suleiman said he is using quiet diplomacy to try to keep the allegations from harming his country's relations with Egypt. "Our policy on this issue is quiet and serious - to solve it so that this will not affect the cordial relations between Lebanon and Egypt," Suleiman was quoted as saying.
