Press release: Italian Ambassador Marotti meets with PM Hariri

Beirut, August 14th, 2017 – The Ambassador of Italy Massimo Marotti was received today by Prime Minister Hariri, to whom he expressed Italy’s support to the Lebanese State and institutions.

The difficult regional situation requires a solid and united State. A solid state is the best guarantee for stability, also at regional level. For this reason, Italy supports the Lebanese institutions, particularly the LAFs.
In addition to the great qualitative and quantitative commitment within UNIFIL, Italy is working along with its armed forces, through the Italian Military Bilateral Mission in Lebanon, to accelerate the acquisition by the Lebanese armed forces of modern operational capabilities. Our main training activities are to the benefit of the Presidential Guard, and other highly specialized Lebanese armed forces units, particularly active in the fight against terrorism.
Italy maintains its own commitments in order to support Lebanon to face the refugee crisis and the difficult economic situation. Economic recovery is an important vector for stability.
