Syria wants Lebanon unity govt led by designate PM

DAMASCUS, Jan 27 (Reuters) - The Syrian government called on Lebanon's divided political leaders on Thursday to join what it described as a unity government led by Prime Minister designate Najib Mikati.

"We hope a national unity government will be formed and all Lebanese parties join," Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem told reporters, in the first official reaction from Damascus to Mikati's appointment. (Reporting by Khaled Yacoub Oweis; Editing by Louise Ireland)
