UNIFIL: Foreign Minister Hitti visits UNIFIL and Blue Line


The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants of Lebanon, Nassif Hitti, on Wednesday visited the UNIFIL Headquarters as well the Mission's area of operations and the Blue Line accompanied by over 30 young Lebanese diplomats, to see first-hand the work carried out by the Mission in coordination with the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF), in stabilizing the situation on the ground for almost 14 years.

"The Government has affirmed Lebanon's commitment to all provisions of UN Security Council resolution 1701 and to supporting the role of UNIFIL in the south," said Minister Hitti.

Minister Hitti's visit, his first since being appointed to the post in January, follows that of Prime Minister Hassan Diab to the UNIFIL Headquarters more than a month ago during which the latter reaffirmed the importance of the continued coordination and close cooperation between UNIFIL and the LAF, thereby facilitating the UNIFIL's mission.--UNIFIL
