View Video

12:36 p.m. EST

MR. MCCORMACK: Good afternoon, everybody. I don't have anything off the top to start with, so we can get right into your questions.


MR. MCCORMACK: Lebanese Chargé d'Affaires.

QUESTION: Anything that we can expect from this meeting other than expressions of support for the government?

MR. MCCORMACK: That's basically it. He's recently arrived, I think, at the end of July, and he is the credited representative, the most senior representative of the Lebanese Government here in the United States. The Secretary wanted to take the opportunity to meet with him here and I would expect that she's going to talk to him about the United States' continuing support for the efforts of the Siniora government to more firmly entrench Lebanese sovereignty and independence and expand political and economic reform and to support Lebanon in any attempts to rebuff those forces that want to encroach upon Lebanese sovereignty and independence.



(The briefing was concluded at 12:50 p.m.)
