jos_imam_musa_sadr-300x300 Arab League chief Amr Mussa was on Thursday still hopeful that Lebanon would receive an invitation through the proper diplomatic channels to attend the Arab summit in Libya. it is pertaining to mention here that due to a row over the disappearance of prominent Shia cleric Ayatullah Musa al-Sadr in Libya in 1978, President of Lebanon Michel Suleiman has
decided to not attend an Arab League summit in Tripoli. During a joint press conference with Foreign Minister Ali al-Shami, Mussa denied that he had delivered Lebanon the invitation to attend the summit. Asked if he believed Libyan leader Moammer Qadhafi would expel the Lebanese community if Beirut decides to boycott the summit, Mussa noted that the issue will be discussed by the Lebanese cabinet. "I don't want to interfere in it. However, I hope that all Arab countries participate in the summit." He denied that the issue of Imam Moussa al-Sadr's disappearance was on the summit's agenda. Yet, Al-Shami explained to reporters that a draft resolution issued by Arab foreign ministers ahead of the summit includes an article that calls for "solidarity with the Lebanese Republic." The article includes two clauses. The first is on the Special Tribunal for Lebanon and the second backs efforts to find out the truth about Sadr's disappearance. "This is an article in a resolution. It is not an article on the agenda" of the summit, Mussa stressed. He also said Sadr's issue wouldn't be discussed if Lebanon decided not to attend the summit.
