Lebanese MPs Hold 'Positive' Talks with U.S. Lawmaker who Says Sanctions Leaks Inaccurate

W460

A Lebanese parliamentary delegation held a “positive” Washington meeting on Thursday with U.S. lawmaker Ed Royce, the Chairman of the United States House Committee on Foreign Affairs, media reports said.

Royce described as “inaccurate” a leaked draft bill pertaining to expanded U.S. sanctions on Hizbullah and its allies, saying the leaks have caused great harm and emphasizing that Washington's support for Lebanon and its army will continue, Lebanese TV networks reported.

Lebanese delegation sources told LBCI television that the U.S. lawmakers and officials have become aware of the delicacy of the Lebanese situation.

The sources also said that Royce's draft “is still being drafted and it is different than what has been leaked.”

“There will be sanctions, but the draft will be evaluated and reformulated,” the sources added.

I hope they're harsher than what we thought from the leaks

"...There will be sanctions...":

the title is inaccurate, there will be sanctions against Lebanon by the so-called United State who claims to be a friend of the country, it's an enemy state, because only enemy states harm each other but not the friendly ones...

Lebanese delegation sources told LBCI television that the U.S. lawmakers and officials have become aware of the delicacy of the Lebanese situation.

yes very delicate situation: The world must feel sorry and empathy for a country and its army that are proud to let an iranian terrorist organization control its destiny.

This delegation should be given a harsh lesson in patriotism and kicked out from the States.
