Prime Minister-designate, Saad Hariri, on Wednesday welcomed at the “Center House”, Egyptian Foreign Minister, Sameh Shoukry, who visited him with an accompanying delegation.
The meeting took stock of the latest developments, the general condition in Lebanon and the region, as well as Egyptian-Lebanese bilateral relations.
In the wake of the meeting, Shoukry said that he had the opportunity to get a briefing on Hariri’s vision about the means through which Lebanon could exit the prevailing impasse as soon as possible, most importantly through accelerating the formation of a rescue government —comprising competent members, away from the logic of quotas.
“I have assured Prime Minister Hariri of Egypt’s full support to every effort aiming at forming a harmonious government capable of carrying out its crucial and tough tasks, in an unconventional and radically different way, by steering clear from obstruction and political rivalry. This is the only way for the government to succeed and obtain the required Arab and international support and to restore Lebanon’s natural position as an Arab beacon that’s dear to the heart of every Egyptian and Arab,” the Egyptian Minister said.
“We always wish Lebanon all the success possible and remain shoulder-to-shoulder facing challenges and helping Lebanon avoid the repercussions associated with the dire economic conditions and the Coronavirus pandemic,” Shoukry concluded.
