European Union Ambassador to Lebanon Christina Lassen met on Friday with Prime Minister Saad Hariri and discussed the recent developments in the country and EU-Lebanon relations.

Lassen welcomed Hariri's return to the country. She expressed hope for a constructive dialogue among political parties carried by a joint understanding of the importance of the stability, unity, integrity and sovereignty of Lebanon and its people.
