Lebanese update

Lebanese Prime Minister Rafic Hariri has reviewed a broad range of issues with U.S. officials on his Washington visit this week but has said little about his talks, except that they "are going well."

He met Secretary of State Colin L. Powell and World Bank President James D. Wolfensohn on Monday. With Mr. Powell, he discussed Lebanon's water conflict with Israel, the pending confrontation with Iraq and the latest Israeli-Palestinian developments.

The Paris conference is scheduled for Nov. 23.
