UK Premier: Lebanon's Saniora has our support in political impasse

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown offered Lebanese counterpart Fuad Saniora his full backing Tuesday in attempts to end a power struggle between his government and the Syrian-backed opposition led by Hizbullah. Following talks in London, Brown offered support to the Lebanese prime minister and the Arab League in their efforts to end an impasse over the election of a new president. "His government has our strong support as it works to restore and strengthen the integrity of Lebanon's institutions, and to protect Lebanon's future as a tolerant and diverse democracy," Brown said in a statement issued after the meeting.
