UAE Foreign Minister His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan attended on Sunday the Lebanese parliament session during which General Michele Suleiman was elected new president of Lebanon.

The historic session was attended by HH Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, Amir of Qatar, who brokered a deal to end the Lebanese crisis, and a number of Arab, European and international dignitaries and VIPs including Arab and foreign ministers.

Sheikh Abdullah conveyed to President Suleiman the congratulations of UAE President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces HH General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan for being elected president of Lebanon, and their wishes for further progress, prosperity and security for Lebanon and its people.

Sheikh Abdullah hoped all Lebanese rival factions would join forces to guide Lebanon towards progress and prosperity and meet its people's aspirations for liberating the rest of its land.

Sheikh Abdullah, who was received upon arrival earlier at Beirut International Airport by a number of Lebanese officials, and Mohammed Sultan Al Suwaidi, UAE ambassador to Lebanon, attended a luncheon hosted by Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora in honour of delegations attending the election ceremony. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
