BEIRUT: President Michel Sleiman traveled Saturday to Moscow where he is expected to meet with Russian officials.

During Thursday’s Cabinet session, Sleiman informed ministers about his three-day trip to Russia where he said he would meet with President Vladimir Putin and a number of officials.

Sleiman, who left Rafik Hariri International Airport before noon, was accompanied by a ministerial delegation.

The president visit comes a day after MP Walid Jumblatt’s visit to Moscow where he met with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

Jumblatt, the head of the Progressive Socialist Party, and Lavrov discussed the crisis in Syria as well as the refugees in Lebanon.

The PSP leader said Russia voiced its willingness to help the refugees in Lebanon financially and politically.
