Nota Farnesina – Conversation between Minister Luigi Di Maio and the Lebanese Foreign Minister, Nassif Hitti

Today, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Luigi Di Maio, had a telephone conversation with the Lebanese Minister of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants, Nassif Hitti. The focus of the conversation – in addition to Covid-19 emergency, regional issues and bilateral economic cooperation – was the confirmation of Italy’s continued support to Lebanese institutions.

In this context, Minister Di Maio expressed his appreciation for the recent adoption of the economic rescue plan by Diab’s Government, which includes a request for assistance to the IMF and marks an important step towards a serious and unavoidable reform process, in response to the legitimate aspirations of citizens.

Minister Di Maio also reaffirmed the Italian commitment to Lebanon’s stability and security, pursued through its qualified participation in UNIFIL, Italian support to the Lebanese Armed and Security Forces and related training activities.
