President Michel Aoun on Thursday met with British Chief of Staff, General Sir Nick Carter at the Presidential Palace in Baabda, the Presidency media office said on Twitter.

Carter reiterated his country’s “continued support for Lebanon’s government and its armed forces,” it said.

In February, the UK made a decision to outlaw the political wing of Hizbullah. It announced it would seek to make membership of the movement or inviting support for it a crime.

But UK officials have asserted that the move won’t impact the Lebanese government or its people.

British Minister of State for the Middle East at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, Alistair Burt said that "British ties with Lebanon will remain intact despite the British decisions against Hizbullah."
