Prime Minister Saad Hariri praised the results of the recent Rome conference and the efforts exerted by the Lebanese Army in maintaining sovereignty and security in an interview published in the General Security magazine Thursday.Rome II, a conference in support of Lebanon's Army and security forces, was held in the Italian capital on March 15 . Various nations, including Lebanon's long-time allies the U.S., the EU and France, made monetary pledges, while Lebanon's security forces presented five-year plans at the conference.Hariri said international support for Lebanon, in the form of Rome II, has been buttressed by the "achievements" of the Army.After last year's "Fajr al-Joroud" military operation by the Army to push Daesh (ISIS) militants from the northeast borderlands, reports of cooperation between the Army and Hezbollah – although denied strongly by the Army – did not go down well with some in the international community, especially those major supporters of the Army that designate Hezbollah a terrorist group.
