Harb, Kaag discuss latest developments

NNA – Minister of Telecommunications, Boutros Harb, met this Friday at his office at the ministry special UN coordinator for Lebanon, Sigrid Kaag, with whom he discussed the latest developments in Lebanon and the region.

They also addressed the subject of attacks in Bourj Barajneh last night, and the potential role of the international community in this regard.

The minister said that the condemnation of the crime was not sufficient.

“This incident should encourage all political parties to assume their responsibilities and should encourage the Lebanese to unite to rebuild the state and immunize it against the waves of terrorism,” he said.

Harb also contacted House Speaker, Nabih Berri, to offer his condolences, and Prime Minister Tammam Salam, to discuss measures to be taken by the government at this critical time.
