Beirut - Dr. Khalid Qabani, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research said here today that the UAE initiative to renovate schools and provide textbooks has led to the smooth beginning of the school year.

Speaking at a news conference here on Friday, Qabani said: "We are greatly indebted to the UAE President H.H Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan for his generous initiative to renovate our schools and make it possible for our students to start their school year just on time".

The Minister said there was a prevailing view that schools would not start this year following the massive 4-week long Israeli destruction campaign.

"The determination of the Lebanese people and the generous support of our Arab brethren, particularly the UAE made it possible for our kids not to loose one year of schooling:” said Qabani.

For his part, UAE ambassador Mohammed Al Suweidi said the UAE was committed to good education, which is why President Khalifa and Vice President H.H Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum launched their initiative to renovate schools and provide textbooks. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
