FM Wehbe meets with Italian Deputy FM Sereni, tackles Lebanese-Italian bilateral ties

Caretaker Foreign Minister, Charbel Wehbe, met on Monday with Italy’s Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Marina Sereni, and an accompanying delegation.

The talks reportedly focused on bilateral ties between Lebanon and Italy, as well as Italy’s willingness to provide additional assistance to Lebanon once a rescue government is established.

Conferees also discussed the UNIFIL’s position, particularly in light of the recent escalation in the occupied territories. As a result, Sereni has stated that Italy supports “an immediate cessation of violence in Palestine and the use of mediation to resolve issues.”
