Sydney - Middle East Times: Minister Ziad Baroud continues his visit to Australia, and lectured yesterday afternoon at the Institute of Democracy and Human Rights at the University of Sydney.

In his address, H. E. Ziyad Baroud, former Lebanese Minister of Interior, attempted to point out the potential that exists for Lebanon to reset itself as a neutral place of hope and development within a region bathed in turmoil.  Ziyad pointed out that although the Lebanese potential has been squandered for so many decades by the political schisms induced by neighboring plights, Lebanon must learn to assume a role of evenhandedness towards different conflicts and render itself as an essential pivot of hard-learned lessons in order to produce a forward-looking momentum in the nation-building process. He guided his audience through the major challenges the country faces in the Middle East today, highlighting where the Lebanese potential has previously failed, where the nation has simply been a prisoner of history and looking forward to not repeating the mistakes of days past.  Question time provided the audience the opportunity to exchange ideas and they undoubtedly came away with a clearer understanding and appreciation of Lebanon’s challenges to come.
