U.S. envoy expresses concern over Syria crisis destabilizing Lebanon
A+ A-

BEIRUT: U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Maura Connelly expressed her country’s concern that developments in Syria might destabilize Lebanon during her meeting Thursday with MP Michel Aoun.

“Ambassador Connelly underscored U.S. concerns that developments in Syria not contribute to instability in Lebanon,” a statement by the embassy said.

Connelly held discussions with Aoun, head of the Free Patriotic Movement, and Public Works Minister Ghazi Aridi Thursday on the economic and political situation in Lebanon.

“The Ambassador and Minister Aridi discussed the economic and political situation in Lebanon,” the statement said.

A separate statement said that Connelly discussed the crisis in Syria with Aoun.

In both meetings, the U.S. official renewed the commitment of the United States to a stable, sovereign and independent Lebanon.
