Bush tells Syria to pull out of Lebanon

by on March 9th, 2005


President Bush has pledged to continue promoting democracy in the Middle East and has renewed his call for Syria to pull its troops out of Lebanon. Some analysts, however, warn that the Bush administration should not overestimate its ability to drive change in the region.

President Bush demanded that Syria withdraw its troops from Lebanon before parliamentary elections in May.

“All Syrian military forces and intelligence personnel must withdraw before the Lebanese elections for those elections to be free and fair,” he said.
