BEIRUT: Dubai is seeking to boost “brotherly” ties with Lebanon – the country Emiratis consider their second home – caretaker Tourism Minister Fadi Abboud said Tuesday.

He was quoting Dubai deputy ruler Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammad bin Rashed al-Maktoum during a meeting with him on the sidelines of the Arabian Travel Market Exhibition in the UAE city.

Maktoum, according to Abboud, stressed his country’s keenness on preserving “security and political stability in Lebanon, developing better relations between the two brotherly countries and enhancing brotherly ties between the Lebanese and Emiratis who consider Lebanon their second home.”

Abboud praised the “high level of professionalism” the UAE has reached in terms of organizing and hosting international conferences.

He stressed Lebanon’s “full support” to the holding of Expo 2020 in Dubai due to the successes achieved by the UAE.
