The agreement was signed in Doha on 21 May 2008 by Lebanese political leaders attending the Conference and in the presence of the President and members of the Committee of Arab Ministers. The ongoing political crisis in Lebanon suddenly exploded when the government took two decisions to withdraw Hezbollah`s telecommunications network and dismiss the head of security at Rafik Hariri International Airport, after learning of a Hezbollah surveillance camera monitoring the number 17 west runway, mainly used for executive aircraft. [2] In response to these decisions, the riots swept Beirut, causing serious clashes between Hezbollah and the majority, and then Hezbollah forces invaded and took control of western Beirut. It was the first time since the Lebanese civil war (1975-1990) that Hezbollah had used weapons on the internal front. Fighting has shifted to several areas of the country, including Lebanon and the north, and an estimated 300 people have died in the operation. The Arab Council acted quickly to end the violence. On the basis of the Arab initiative to contain the Lebanese crisis and as part of the agreement reached between the Lebanese parties in Beirut on 15 May 2008, an agreement was reached under the aegis of the Arab Committee of Ministers.

That is why the dialogue on the promotion of state authority was launched in Doha, in accordance with paragraph 5 of the Beyrout agreement, and an agreement was reached that, as a result of the agreement, opposition barricades were dismantled, as were opposition protest camps in Martyrs Square.

The UN Security Council welcomed the agreement reached between the Lebanese majority and the opposition blocs to end an 18-month political impasse and elect a new president.

The United Nations “welcomes and strongly supports the agreement reached by the Lebanese leadership in Doha on 21 May, which is an essential step in resolving the current crisis…
