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.
