CANADIAN FOREIGN MINISTER THANKS BASSIL FOR LEBANON’S EFFORTS TO RELEASE CANADIAN CITIZEN FROM SYRIA

Foreign Affairs and Emigrants Minister, Gebran Bassil, received Monday a telephone call from his Canadian counterpart, Chrystia Freeland, thanking him for Lebanon's efforts to free Canadian citizen, Christian Le Baxter, who was detained last year in Syria.

Bassil and Freeland praised the relentless efforts of General Security Director General, Abbas Ibrahim, that led to Baxter's release.

It is to note that the Canadian state had earlier requested Lebanon's intervention to ensure the release of its detained citizen.
