Minister of Interior and Municipalities, Raya Hassan, met Wednesday with a delegation of the American Task Force for Lebanon, chaired by the ATFL President Edward Gabriel, and including Congressman Darin Lahood.
Talks reportedly featured high on the latest developments on the local and regional scenes, in addition to the US continuous support for Lebanon in all fields.
Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Lahood maintained that Lebanon was a key ally of the US.
He added that talks with Minister Hassan were “excellent,” and that they touched on the reforms that Lebanon must conduct in terms of fighting corruption and redressing the public finances and the fiscal system.
Hassan met later with a delegation of the UNDP Lebanese Elections Assistance Project (LEAP), with whom she discussed the means to support the Ministry at the technical and logistical levels in the next polls.
