An article published last week in Israeli daily Haaretz had suggested that Israel could kidnap President Ahmadinejad when he visits Lebanon
Israel daily also reported that the Zionist regime has warned Lebanese government through the US and French embassies and UN secretary-general Ben-Koon to bar Iranian President Dr. Ahmadinejad visiting Israel-Lebanon border during his long-awaited visit to Lebanon next week.
According to the paper, Israel has sent messages to Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri and President Michel Sleiman through the US and French governments as well as the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
The daily quoted a high-ranking Israeli official as saying “they told the Lebanese that it wouldn’t be wise to facilitate Ahmadinejad’s visit to the border.”
Last week, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Ban at UN headquarters that Tel Aviv was “extremely worried” about the Iranian president’s visit.
President Ahmadinejad is planned to make his first official trip to Lebanon next week since taking office in 2005. He is expected to meet with Lebanese President Sleiman, Prime Minister Saad Hariri, Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri as well as leaders of the Hezbollah resistance movement.
