The recent government formation has left a positive impression on foreign ambassadors in Beirut, with the development contributing to an atmosphere of calm aimed at providing cover for the work of the Army and security forces as they try to track down terrorist cells.The sources revealed that since the government formation, some Lebanese officials have received Western signals about launching international conferences to help Lebanon deal with the large influx of Syrian refugees and support its institutions, particularly the Army, to enable them to face the threat of terrorism coming from Syria.According to sources, Saudi Arabia's recent $3 billion grant to Lebanon may not be the only assistance from the Arab world, with the Gulf Cooperation Council expected to hold a meeting on March 20 in Kuwait to look into several issues, including the Lebanese file.
