U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs Jeffrey Feltman has no plans to visit Beirut, informed diplomatic sources told An-Nahar daily.
They denied that the former U.S ambassador to Lebanon is to arrive to Lebanon soon.
“Feltman is currently present in Washington,” the sources told the newspaper.
The denial came in response to a report by al-Akhbar daily on Thursday that Feltman was to visit Beirut in the coming 48 hours.
