BEIRUT: The Arab League Wednesday voiced solidarity with Lebanon and called for enhancing the country’s security forces.

“We call for solidarity with Lebanon and for securing political and economic support for the country while maintaining Lebanon’s sovereignty,” Khaled al-Jarallah, Kuwait's foreign ministry undersecretary, said, reading the final Arab summit statement.

“We hail the role of the Lebanese Army and Lebanese security forces and we stress the need to further enhance their capacities to ensure stability in the country,” he said.

The statement also saluted “Lebanon and its resistance against Israeli occupation, particularly in the July [August] 2006 aggression,” referring to the 33-day war between Lebanon and Israel.
