It is important that Lebanon elects a new president as soon as possible, the U.N.'s new envoy to Lebanon, Sigrid Kaag, said Friday during meetings with Lebanese officials, urging all sides to prevent the security situation in the south from deteriorating.Kaag said the U.N. would work on securing funds so the organization, the Lebanese government and its partners could effectively address the huge needs of both Syrian refugees and Lebanese host communities.As for the security situation, Kaag said she discussed with Salam last week's Israeli strike on a Hezbollah convoy in Qunaitra in Syria, which killed six party fighters and an Iranian commander.
