Baku-APA. Lebanese President Michel Suleiman said Wednesday that some Lebanese politicians' comments against foreign countries did not reflect the government's policy, APA reorts quoting Xinhua.

March 8 Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun has recently criticized the international community and the Arab League for their lack of support for Bahraini protesters.

Bahrain summoned last Friday Lebanese charge d'affaires, Ibrahim Assaf, over Aoun's remarks, accusing Aoun of meddling in other country's internal affairs.

However, Prime Minister Najib Miqati stressed on several occasions that the comments reflected Aoun's personal viewpoint, not that of the government.
