After the meeting, the Dean of the Arab Diplomatic Corps, the Ambassador of Kuwait Abdul Aal Al Kinai, said: “Prime Minister Hariri explained the Lebanese viewpoint on the recent events in Beirut and the southern suburbs. We as Arab countries stated our support and attachment to the security and stability of Lebanon and the measures or policies it takes to preserve its security, stability and territorial integrity, because the Arabs are keen on the stability of Lebanon and want it to be safe from all that threatens its security and stability.”

Hariri then met with New Zealand’s Ambassador to Lebanon Greg Lewis and discussed with him the situation and the bilateral relations.

He also received the former United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Secretary General, Taleb Rifai, and the President of the Lebanese exhibitions and conferences Association, Elie Rizk.
