Lebanon hails UAE

posted on 28/08/2006: 1033 views



Mrs. Randa Berri, wife of the Lebanese Parliament Speaker, has praised the UAE for its humanitarian and relief assistance to Lebanon. Mrs Berri, who is also Chairperson of the Lebanese Society for the Handicapped, made her remarks in a statement carried by a Saudi daily today.



In the statement titled "UAE air bridge lifts 1500 tonnes of aid to Lebanon", Al Riyadh daily quoted Berri as hailing the UAE Red Crescent Society (RCS) for its support of the Lebanese people. The paper noted that an aid plane carrying 40 tonnes of aid had landed at Rafiq Al Hariri International Airport, thus bringing to 1500 the total tonnage of relief sent by the UAE.



Yesterday, the RCS delegation and a UAE demining team called on Nabih Berri, Lebanese parliament Speaker and briefed him on humanitarian aid their country was rendering to Lebanon.



Dr Saleh Al Ta'e, head of the RCS delegation, said the team was second of its kind the UAE charity organisation had dispatched to Lebanon.



Mohammed Sultan Al Suweidi, UAE Ambassador to Lebanon, said in another statement to the Saudi paper that a high level delegation would visit Lebanon to estimate the damage caused by war, particularly in Southern Lebanon, and identify urgent requirements of war-ravaged areas.
