Bou Habib meets Vatican Secretary of State

Caretaker Foreign Minister, Abdullah Bou Habib, who is currently on an official visit to Italy, on Friday met with Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, who expressed deep concern that the Lebanese Parliament has so far failed to elect a new President of the Republic, urging Lebanese officials to speed up the presidential election to choose the future president.

Parolin also expressed his understanding of “Lebanon’s concerns regarding the issue of Syrian refugees, particularly in light of the worsening economic crisis.”

He promised to provide all possible assistance to open the doors of dialogue with the community of donor countries in order to agree on a roadmap in this direction.
