Sarraf meets Indonesian Deputy House Speaker

Caretaker Minister of National Defense, Yaacoub Sarraf, on Wednesday met with the Deputy Speaker of Indonesia's House of Representatives, Fadli Zon, accompanied by a delegation of lawmakers.

Talks reportedly touched on the means to bolster the bilateral cooperation between Lebanon and Indonesia, especially in the fields of economy and tourism.

During the meeting, Sarraf reiterated Lebanon's rejection of the continuous Israeli violations of its sovereignty.

He also explained to his guest the reverberations of the Syrian refugee crisis on the local situation.

"Lebanon can no longer bear the brunt of this displacement," he said, urging the international community to help secure refugees' return to Syria.

Sarraf did not fail to hail Indonesia's participation in the UNIFIL.
