Nicosia, Feb 16 (CNA) -- House President Demetris Christofias condemned today the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Al Hariri, as he signed the book of condolences at the embassy of Lebanon.

''Such acts undermine the foundations of a whole effort, going on for years now after the civil war and following outside interventions, to reconstruct Lebanon and turn it into the peaceful country that used to be and a centre for development which can contribute towards the solution of the Middle East problem,'' Christofias said.

The House President expressed the hope that there is no follow up to this assassination and no stoppage of the effort to rebuild the country.
