Remarks of UN Special Coordinator Sigrid Kaag after meeting Lebanon Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil
I just had a productive and constructive meeting with Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil. It was an opportunity to discuss the latest developments in Lebanon and the ongoing cooperation between the United Nations and Lebanon along the pillars of peace and security, development and stabilization of Lebanon.
The Minister and I discussed the forthcoming report of the Secretary-General on the implementation of resolution 1701 (2006) due on 15 March.
The Minister and I also discussed recent developments in the Palestine refugee camp of Ain El-Hilweh and the importance of the resumption of basic services of UNRWA, which remain key to stability.
