UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon Jan Kubis met today with His Excellency Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri at Ain El-Tineh, following his arrival in the country on Monday.
Good morning everybody,
I am very grateful that His Excellency the President gave me the audience less than 24 hours after my arrival as the new UN Special Coordinator and political representative of the United Nations here in the country.
I am extremely honoured to be received some three or four hours after my arrival to the country by His Excellency the Minister of Foreign Affairs and other high officials of the country. I take this as a very positive gesture.
