Special Coordinator Kaag meets Prime Minister Salam in follow up to Events of Recent Days
Thursday, 29 January 2015
I met with the Prime Minister in follow up to the events of recent days and given our close contacts. I expressed my appreciation for the Prime Minister’s clearly expressed commitment to Security Council resolution 1701 and the importance of safeguarding Lebanon’s security and stability.
I reiterated the UN Secretary General's deep concern over the security situation and the violations of resolution 1701. The UN continues to provide its good offices and calls on all parties to continue to exercise caution and restraint to avoid any action which could destabilise the situation. We also honored the fallen UNIFIL peacekeeper.
