BEIRUT: Egyptian Foreign Minister, Nabil Fahmi, held talks Friday with senior Lebanese officials to discuss local and regional developments.
Fahmi arrived in Lebanon accompanied by a delegation of Egyptian officials for a three-day visit.
He held talks with President Michel Sleiman over the bilateral ties between Lebanon and Egypt and conveyed the greetings of Egyptian President Adli Mansour to the president.
Fahmi also met with Parliament speaker Nabih Berri in the latter’s Ain al-Tineh residence. The Egyptian official described his visit to Beirut as a “message” to assure that “Egypt will resume the glory of its Arab role.”
“Egypt intends to build a good future free of any sort of terrorism,” he said.
Fahmi also met with his Lebanese counterpart, Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil, and is set to meet later in the day with Prime Minister Tammam Salam.
