EU calls for full Syrian withdrawal (Daily Star)

European leaders demand Detailed timetable from damascus

Prompted by France, the European Union's 25 leaders called on Syria Wednesday to ensure a complete withdrawal of its troops and other security forces from Lebanon, based on a detailed timetable.

"The European Council invites Syria to quickly implement Syrian President Bashar Assad's commitments taken on March 12 to remove its military and intelligence apparatuses from Lebanon," the common declaration said.

Referring to Assad's meeting with UN envoy Terje Roed-Larsen earlier this month, the statement added: "The withdrawal must be complete and must be carried out in accordance with a precise timetable."

The statement was issued on the second day of the EU spring summit in Brussels where French President Jacques Chirac held a news conference, saying: "What we all wish is that Lebanon regains its autonomy, its independence, its integrity and democracy."

Chirac, who strongly condemned Wednesday's fatal bomb attack in Kaslik, said: "We demand in line with UN Security Council Resolution 1559 and call for Syria to withdraw entirely from Lebanon, as soon as possible."

In this context, EU leaders reiterated their support for "a sovereign, independent and democratic Lebanon," calling for upcoming Lebanese parliamentary elections, expected between mid-April and mid-May, to take place "freely, openly and fairly on time and in accordance with the Lebanese Constitution, away from any foreign interference."

The EU has repeatedly said it is closely watching the electoral process and announced Wednesday it will be ready to send monitors ensuring elections are carried out appropriately.

The EU leaders also called for the rapid formation of a new Lebanese government.

"The European Council hopes that a new government will be formed at an early date and that it can act in the interests of all Lebanese."

At the Arab League summit in Algeria on Tuesday, UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, who had called for Syria to withdraw before the elections, secured a promise from Assad that Syria would set a timetable for a full withdrawal by early April.

Syria has finalized the first phase of the pullout which implied the retreat of its estimated 14,000 troops and intelligence agents to the eastern Bekaa Valley toward the Syrian border. Around 5,000 were sent back to Syria, while the second and final phase is set to complete the full redeployment.
