Former President, Amine Gemayel, on Wednesday welcomed at his Bekfaya office the US Ambassador to Lebanon, Dorothy Shea, with whom he discussed the Lebanese crisis at the political, economic and financial levels, and the American policy vis-a-vis the region.
The meeting was an occasion to emphasize the US support to Lebanon, as a state, people and institutions, and the priority of reforms through the fight against corruption and the control of illegal crossings by land, sea and air, as well as structural reforms, starting with the electricity sector.
The conferees also considered that such reforms provide a basis for governance and a mandatory passage en route to the success of negotiations conducted by the Lebanese government with the International Monetary Fund and any other negotiations with donor sides through “CEDRE” or any similar framework.
Discussions also touched on the issue of UNIFIL’s mandate renewal in south Lebanon.
