Caretaker Minister of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants, Dr. Abdullah Bou Habib, on Friday welcomed US Ambassador to Lebanon, Dorothy Shea.

Talks between the pair reportedly focused on the most recent developments, including the steps taken by Lebanon in the wake of the devastating earthquake that jolted Turkey and Syria, especially in terms of opening Rafic Hariri International Airport, and all the Lebanese ports, to facilitate the transportation of aid en route to Syria, in addition to sending Lebanese search and rescue missions to help those affected by the earthquake.
