Minister of Interior and Municipalities, Mohammad Fahmi, on Monday welcomed EU Ambassador to Lebanon, Ralph Tarraf, with whom he discussed the current situation on the local and regional scenes.
During the meeting, Fahmi stressed that security in Lebanon was on the top of the current government’s agenda, “but the current priority is the economic situation and how to overcome the crisis.”
For his part, Ambassador Tarraf said that the international community was monitoring the performance of the new government.
“If the government’s plan of action is coherent, the international community will be even more willing to lend its support,” Tarraf asserted, reminding that the previous governments never kept their promises to the international community.
Moreover, Tarraf condoned the way the security forces have been handling protesters.
