Arab League chief: Lebanon is in danger but there is still hope

Lebanon is in danger but there is still hope, the head of the Arab League said Wednesday ahead of a new round of talks with feuding Lebanese factions over a new Arab plan to solve the country's deepening political crisis. Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa arrived in Beirut to present a plan, unanimously endorsed by Arab foreign ministers in Cairo on Saturday, calling for the election of army commander Gen. Michel Suleiman as president, the formation of a national unity government and the adoption of a new electoral law. "Lebanon is in danger but its salvation is possible. This is a Lebanese as well as an Arab responsibility in the first place," Moussa told reporters at Beirut airport before heading for talks with Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri, who is aligned with the Syrian-backed opposition.
