Suleiman Meets al-Rahi: Lebanon is Keen on UNIFIL’s Safety
President Michel Suleiman stressed on Friday the importance of Lebanon’s implementation of United Nations Security Council resolution 1701.
He said after holding talks with Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi: “Lebanon is keen on the safety of the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon.”
This same position was relayed to French President Nicolas Sarkozy by Prime Minister Najib Miqati who is in France where he took part in the "Friends of Libya" conference.
Al-Rahi visited Suleiman ahead of traveling to France on an official trip.
The president also held talks with General Security chief Abbas Ibrahim on the security situation in Lebanon.
