Bassil says Lebanon, Germany engaged in fighting terrorism
Caretaker Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Minister, Gebran Bassil, said that Lebanon and Germany agreed on the fight against terrorism and the need to prevent all its funding resources.
Minister Bassil’s stance came on Friday during a press conference with German Foreign Minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
“We signed a road map regarding the preservation of Syria’s unity and sovereignty of its territory and its borders,” he added.
He hailed Berlin’s important role in ensuring stability and security that could only be anchored through the eradication of terrorism.
“Lebanon suffers from a shortage of resources while it is receiving the largest number of refugees,” Bassil said thanking Germany for its help in this context.
For his part, the German Minister said that Lebanese people managed to overcome political obstacles in order to build a better future for their country.
He said that the assistance of Lebanon in assuming the burden of refugees is persisting, announcing a contribution of 10 million Euros to deal with this crisis.
Steinmeier highlighted the importance of reaching a solution to the Syrian war.https://syrianewsgazette.com/bassil-says-lebanon-germany-engaged-in-fighting-terrorism/National news
