A day before his scheduled visit to Kuwait, President Michel Suleiman said Saturday that the Lebanese are anxiously waiting for Kuwaiti tourists this summer.
In an interview with the Kuwait News Agency, KUNA, Suleiman said: “The Lebanese will not forget the support of the Kuwaiti emir, the government and the people.”
“The Lebanese are anxiously awaiting for the Kuwaitis this summer during the tourism season,” he said. “Lebanon officially and at the popular level is ready to embrace them and ensure their security, freedom and dignity.”
The president announced on Wednesday that he would visit Kuwait “to encourage tourism” after its foreign ministry and three other Gulf countries issued a travel advisory to Lebanon.
Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and Bahrain issued the travel warnings after deadly clashes erupted between pro- and anti-Syrian groups in Beirut and the northern city of Tripoli last month.
Suleiman held talks on Friday with Saudi King Abdullah which among other things focused on the advisories.
