President Michel Suleiman called on Wednesday on the Lebanese to abide by the dissociation policy and not to send arms shipments or fighters to the neighboring country Syria. The president called on different parties not to send “arms shipments and fighters to Syria and not to establish any training bases in Lebanon."

He pointed out that the Lebanese should abide by the dissociation policy and not meddle in the Syrian affairs to safeguard the national unity and prevent any tension locally.Lebanese authorities have officially followed the policy to distance the country from the Syrian conflict. But they have also been reluctant to publicly blame either regime forces or rebel fighters for fire hitting villages and towns near the border with Syria.
