I am pleased to convey my greetings to this meeting of the International Support Group for Lebanon. I thank the German government for hosting and recognize Prime Minister Salam for his leadership.

Continuing pressure on Lebanon’s eastern border and the weekend’s attacks on the Lebanese army in Tripoli have further highlighted the threat.
