President Michel Aoun held talks at Baabda Palace with U.S. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs David Hale, in the presence of U.S. ambassador Elizabeth Richard and an embassy delegation, the National News Agency reported on Monday.

“The more the United States supports the just peace process in the Middle East, the more calm will prevail in Lebanon on the southern border,” Aoun said.

The President also told Hale that Lebanon is "in the process of introducing some financial and economic reforms by strengthening the productive sectors, in addition to activating the fight against corruption.”

On demarcating the border between Lebanon and the occupied territories of Palestine, Aoun told Hale: “The demarcation process of Lebanon’s southern border has been delayed, but we hope it will resume soon.”

Hale later held talks with Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil, Speaker Nabih Berri and Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri.

Never has Lebanon known or seen a president who likes to hold talks as much as this one, ever!

This president or no president makes no difference, the leadership is inexistant.

After taking this picture.. a confused President Aoun.. looked at the lady standing on his left.. and asked.. "Mireille.. is this my new son in law?".. seeing the puzzled look on ambassador Richard's face.. and in an attempt to reassure her.. the President continued.. "no no dear.. you have my blessings.. he's much much better than Roy".. that's when the real Mireille Aoun.. together with the other two presidential advisers cum daughters.. in a well drilled maneuver.. burst into the room.. picked up the president by his extremities.. and whisked him into a dark secret room... An impressed Hale asked.. what was that!!.. did they get Navy SEAL training?!..
