SUBJECT: PRESERVING LEBANESE PM SINIORA'S GOVERNMENT: 
DEMARCHE DELIVERED 
 
REF: STATE 172274 
 
Classified By: Ambassador William J. Burns:  1.4(B/D). 
 
1.  (S) We delivered reftel demarche October 25 to MFA Middle 
East and North Africa Department Senior Counselor Vladimir 
Baibakov.  Baibakov provided the following points: 
 
-- the GOR was aware of the concern over the SARG's attempt 
to undermine the Siniora government; 
 
-- Russia sees Siniora as a consolidating force in Lebanon 
and is not interested in seeing his government fail.  His 
demise could increase the possibility of another civil war in 
Lebanon; 
 
-- with Hezbollah's influence increasing, all parties should 
seek ways to render assistance to the Siniora government; 
 
-- Israel PM Olmert raised the issue during his meeting with 
FM Lavrov, and the GOR had conveyed its concern to Syrian 
officials following Olmert's departure. 
 
2.  (C) Separately, Presidential Administration foreign 
policy advisor Sergey Prikhodko confirmed to Ambassador that 
the GOR was seeking ways to bolster both the Siniora 
government and Abu Mazen, and was pleased by Olmert's 
sympathetic approach to shoring up the central Lebanese 
government.
