posted on 13/09/2006: 722 views

Beirut - The UAE will always support Lebanon, to help it overcome the effects of the Israeli aggression, said Mohammad Abdullah Al Gergawi, Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs. Al Gergawi, heading a UAE delegation to Lebanon, was received by Lebanese President Emile Lahoud and Prime Minister Fouad Siniora on Monday.

He conveyed to Lahoud the greetings and wishes of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan and His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

Lahoud said that the solidarity shown by the UAE with Lebanon during the crisis was not new, as the UAE has always given the best support to Lebanon. He commended the UAE for its help in extracting landmines from southern Lebanon, and said that Israel bombarded Lebanon with more than 100,000 cluster bombs in the last two days of the aggression.

Al Gergawi reviewed the support to be provided by the UAE, which includes rehabilitation of schools and the removal of landmines and cluster bombs, in addition to the aid given earlier to the displaced Lebanese during the war and the rehabilitation of hospitals and a fishermen's port in Al Ouzai area, and other assistance.

He referred to Sheikh Khalifa's initiative to rebuild schools in southern Lebanon, saying that rebuilding operations will start today. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
