Cyprus announced that it will provide Lebanon's military with ammunition worth $10 million, media reports said Wednesday.

Cypriot Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides announced after meeting his Lebanese counterpart Jebran Bassil in New York that his country would provide 10 million dollars worth of ammunition to the Lebanese army, media reports said.

The two men met on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

Cypriot media reports said that “bilateral relations as well as the trilateral cooperation between Cyprus-Greece-Lebanon were discussed.”

In June, Defense Minister Yaacoub Sarraf announced during an official visit to Cyprus that Lebanon will receive 15M euro in military aid from Cyprus.

If Lebanese officials cut down on their embezzlement of public funds and resources, they can arm the LAF with everything it needs without having to beg foreign nations.

The only fights the Lebanese Army has, or at least should have, at the present time are :
1. to get rid of Hizballah from Lebanese territory.
2. get rid of the armed groups terrorising the Palestinian camps all over the country.
