Iraqi PM, Nouri al-Maliki reiterated his country''s support to a political and pacific agreement to the crisis in Syria and rejected all kinds of foreign interference in the neighboring country.

Syrian media highlights Al-Maliki's declarations who also warned that the present attempts to keep on arming and instigating the opposition worsen violence.

In an interview to Awena Iraqi newspaper, the head of State remarked that Baghdad's policy in terms of the Syrian problem is of not interference in the internal affairs and against violence that worsens the crisis.

He added that his government supports the political solution of the Syrian crisis, which could lead to probable wars in the region.

He declared that the language and the actions with the use of the force to defeat the Syrian political regime had not succeeded in their goal. A year had gone by and the government (of President Bashar al-Assad) had not fall, and will not fall, Al-Maliki stressed.

He recalled that in the Arab League Summit held in Baghdad last March, they warned that arming the opposition would lead to alternative regional and international wars in Syria.

Prime Minister of Lebanon, Najib Mikati, and the secretary general of the Syrian-Lebanese Higher Council Nasri Khouri also discussed in Damascus, the bilateral ties, specially the common border and the research of the incident that killed Lebanese reporter. Khouri said that all information concerning the death of cameraman Ali Shaaban, from channel al-Jaaled was handed over to Lebanese President Michel Suleiman.

Mikati and Khouri discussed on suitable mechanisms to control the border and the need to expedite the coordination between the authorities of both countries in this field. The parties stated that there was agreement on this vital aspect.
