MOSCOW, December 3 (RIA Novosti) - The Russian Foreign Ministry urged Lebanese leaders Sunday to prevent the country from sliding into confrontation.

Thousands of Hezbollah supporters have staged protests in Beirut in the past few days, demanding the resignation of the Lebanese government led by Prime Minister Fouad Siniora.

Regrettably, tension in that country is not easing, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Mikhail Kamynin said, adding that Moscow attaches great significance to the strengthening of stability and national accord in Lebanon.

"We have stressed on many occasions that the only recipe for keeping civil peace in that multi-confessional country is dialog between all political forces and a search for compromise collective decisions on the key issues of domestic and foreign policy, taking into account the interests of all the Lebanese within the constitutional framework," Kamynin said.
