Lebanon - Foreign Affairs and Emigrants Minister, Nassif Hitti, met on Monday at Villa Boustros with US Ambassador to Lebanon, Dorothy C. Shea, with talks touching on the recent judicial ruling.

Minister Hitti underlined media freedom and the right to express which are “sacred rights.”

Discussions also dwelt on most recent developments at the local scene. They also discussed the bilateral relations between the two countries and the Lebanese and American peoples, stressing the importance of cooperation between the two governments in all domains, in support of Lebanon to get out of the current economic crisis.

On emerging, Ambassador Shea delivered the following statement:

“Foreign Minister Hitti and I just had a positive meeting in which we reinforced the importance of the bilateral relationship to each country.

Among the issues we discussed was the recent court ruling. We turned the page on this unfortunate distraction so we can all focus on the real crisis at hand, which is the deteriorating economic situation in Lebanon. The United States stands ready and will continue to help the Lebanese people as the government takes the necessary steps to address the underlying causes.

We value our cooperation to advance our many shared interests and mutual objectives, especially in these difficult times.

I can assure you that ours is a strong bilateral relationship that will continue to benefit the people of both countries.”
