Prime Minister Saad Hariri met Monday in Rome with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni and the talks focused on military and economic support for Lebanon.
“The meeting tackled the ongoing preparations for the Rome II Conference to support the Lebanese army and security forces, and the Paris Conference to support the Lebanese economy as well as Lebanon's request to lift Italian restrictions on Lebanese agricultural and industrial products,” Hariri's office said in a statement.
Lebanon's ambassador to Italy Karim Khalil, Hariri's adviser Nader Hariri, Italian Ambassador to Lebanon Massimo Marotti and the advisers of the Italian Prime Minister for diplomatic, political and military affairs participated in the talks after a closed-door meeting between the two premiers.
Hariri had traveled to the Vatican late last week where he held talks on Friday with Pope Francis and invited him to visit Lebanon.
