CAIRO, March 5 (KUNA) -- A delegation representing the Lebanese parlaiment majority conferred here with Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit.

According to an Egyptian Foreign Ministry statement, the Lebanese politicians briefed Abul Gheit with the position of the majority lawmakers which supports the Arab peace initiative.

The Lebanese legislators told Abul Gheit of the majority's committment to the initiative, pointing out that the political crisis in Lebanon was no longer an internal affair rather a danger threatening the Arab region in general, according to the statement.
