  • [01] FM - LEBANON - VISIT

    The Republic of Cyprus will put at the disposal of the UN and the EU its ports and the Andreas Papandreou military air base for the deployment of the UN peacekeeping force for Lebanon, Minister of Foreign Affairs George Lillikas announced here Thursday.

    He also said Cyprus will participate in the force with two National Guard officers and will continue to offer its services for the transfer of the humanitarian aid to the country.

    In statements at Larnaca Airport after his one-day visit to Lebanon at the invitation of Prime Minister Fouad Siniora, Lillikas said that he toured the devastated areas in the Beirut suburbs where "we really came face-to-face with overwhelming pictures of pointless destruction."

    He expressed the view that the destruction of Lebanon`s infrastructure and the bombing of residential areas was uncalled for.

    "I believe that those who witness these pictures believe even more that war does not solve problems, it creates problems and the only way to solve further problems is through dialogue and political means," the Minister added.

    Referring to his meetings with Siniora, Minister of Foreign Affairs Fawzi Salloukh as well as leader of the ``Future Movement Bloc`` Sa`ad Hariri, son of assassinated former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafic al Hariri, Lillikas said he conveyed the "support of the government and people of Cyprus to the great effort underway for the country`s reconstruction and to bring back peace and security on a long-term and stable basis."

    He assured that the government of Cyprus will support Lebanon`s efforts and will take part in various programmes that will be launched, as well as the cooperation with European countries for reconstructing the country`s infrastructure.
