Different roads to damascus

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Coordination between the United States and Europe over implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1559-especially after the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq al-Hariri in February 2005-appeared to many observers to exemplify the possibilities for restoring some measure of transatlantic cooperation regarding the Middle East. This coordination was critical to eliciting concerted international pressure on Syria, in the aftermath of the assassination, to withdraw its military and intelligence presence in Lebanon. Nevertheless, looking beyond the withdrawal of Syrian troops from Lebanon, formally completed in April 2005, there is potential for divergence between American and European policies toward this part of the region during the next few years.
