Beirut - Asharq Al-Awsat
Lebanon’s Prime Minister Saad Hariri praised Wednesday the decision taken by the Saudi leadership to lift the travel ban to Lebanon, saying it has largely increased the number of visitors recently, a development which signals a promising summer that the Lebanese are waiting for.

The PM also spoke about “the true desire of the Kingdom's leaders to deepen the brotherly ties with Lebanon and support its unity, independence, sovereignty and coexistence between all its components; which is unique in the region.”

Hariri was speaking at a symposium entitled "Humanitarian Action between Donors' Contributions and Role of Implementing Agencies" held Wednesday at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beirut under the patronage of Hariri, the Saudi Embassy in Lebanon and King Salman Center for Humanitarian Aid and Relief (KSrelief).

The center's General Supervisor Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Rabeeah, who is visiting Beirut, said the current circumstances necessitate concerted efforts by the humanitarian community in its two main segments- donors and implementers - to reduce the burden on the host countries of refugees.

The Saudi Center signed several agreements with Lebanese and international governmental and private bodies to support the Lebanese needy people as well as the Syrian and Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.

For his part, Saudi Ambassador to Lebanon, Waleed Bukhari said the Kingdom will be in the forefront of defending humanity and will be the greatest volunteer for relieving the underprivileged, out of its conviction to alleviate human suffering and ensure a decent life for the vulnerable.
