Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos stressed here on Thursday that Israel, Syria and Lebanon all agree on the importance of peace, Xinhua reported.
In a press conference at the end of his visit to Beirut, Moratinos, who had also paid a visit to Israel, said that Israel, Syria and Lebanon all have assured him during his regional tour that they don't want any escalation, and that they agreed on the importance of peace.
"I will return to Spain with optimism and good will from all parties involved in the peace process in the Middle East," said the Spanish foreign minister.
"I hope that the messages of peace and good will would manifest themselves on June 6, during the Barcelona Summit, so that the Euro-Med region could finally bask in peace and prosperity," he added.
Moratinos, whose country currently holds the European Union presidency, met in Beirut with Lebanese President Michel Suleiman and Prime Minister Saad Hariri.
Moratinos' regional tour came amid rising tensions between Lebanon, Syria and Israel, as Tel Aviv accused Damascus last month of transferring Scud missiles to Lebanese Shiite armed group Hezbollah, which was denied by Syria.
Earlier, Moratinos held talks in Damascus with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on the EU-Syrian Partnership Agreement, Iranian nuclear issue, current situation in Iraq and Lebanon as well as the Palestinian-Israeli peace talks.
