Bassil Says Lebanon, Germany Engaged in Fight against Terrorism

Caretaker Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil, said that Lebanon and Germany agreed on the fight against terrorism and the need to prevent its funding resources.

Bassil’s stance came on Friday during a joint press conference with German Foreign Minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

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.
