British Prime Minister Tony Blair has warned Syria that the world is watching its actions closely -- adding to diplomatic pressure on Damascus to pull its troops out of Lebanon.
Mr. Blair told the Guardian newspaper that Syria should realize that it must comply with its international obligations.
Tuesday, the United States and France called for an immediate withdrawal of 14,000 Syrian troops from Lebanon.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has told Time magazine he expects his troops to be withdrawn in a matter of months, but declined to give a definite timetable.
Meanwhile, in Beirut, thousands of protesters vowed to keep up anti-Syrian demonstrations triggered by the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
The killing has increased pressure on Syria to end its long involvement in its neighbor's affairs.
