BOU SAAB KICKS OFF VISIT TO ARMENIA, MEETS WITH DEFENSE AND FOREIGN MINISTERS

National Defense Minister, Elias Bou Saab, on Friday kicked off an official visit to Armenia by meeting with his Armenian counterpart, Davit Tonoyan.

Lebanon and Armenia are suffering from the same problems and challenges along their borders; Israel is constantly attacking our land and violating international resolutions, the most important of which is resolution 1701, over and over again. It recently attacked us and sent two drones to Beirut one of them exploded and the other one was seized, Bou Saab said in a joint press conference with his Armenian counterpart.

Armenia is also suffering from border violations by Azerbaijani drones, he added, deeming this an additional reason for security cooperation with Armenia through the exchange of security and intelligence information.

We thank Armenia for its participation in the international forces in Lebanon. (...) Thank you for your humanitarian and medical participation in Syria. You play a positive and sound role in war, and this is a great example for our youth and new generations worldwide, Bou Saab said.

Separately, Bou Saab met with Armenian Foreign Minister, Zohrab Mnatsakanyan, with whom he discussed ways to develop relations between the two countries.
