Naharnet: Suleiman to Make Foreign Trip Soon with U.S. as Final Destination
President Michel Suleiman is scheduled to leave Lebanon within the next few hours on a previously unannounced foreign trip, highly informed sources told Naharnet on Monday.
According to the obtained information, Suleiman's final destination will be the United States, "although he will make a stop at one of the European capitals."
And despite the fact that the visit comes only hours after a decision by the European Union to place Hizbullah's military wing on its list of "terrorist organizations" and two days after French President Francois Hollande's phone talks with Suleiman, informed sources in the U.S. told Naharnet that the trip is of a private and personal nature.
The sources added, however, that the presidential palace's circles have put the relevant officials in the U.S. administration in the picture of the trip, without ruling out the possibility that the president might hold certain meetings with U.S. officials on the sidelines of his visit.
