MOSCOW, June 20. /TASS/. Lebanon expects additional support of Russia in the fight against terrorism, Lebanon’s Finance Minister Ali Khalil said at the meeting with Russian Federation Council lawmaker Konstantin Kosachev.
"You backed our security forces and our army a long time ago, and now we would like this effort to be increased and to get additional support from you for our armed forces," the Lebanese minister told Kosachev, who heads the upper house’s foreign affairs committee.
Khalil said Lebanon is waging war on terrorists, including the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra groups in the country’s north and east. "The Lebanese army is fighting against them almost on a daily basis. In this regard, the army needs the support," he said.
