Following the meeting Lahoud said: "We were honored to visit His Beatitude today, and the meeting was excellent, in which we discussed a number of issues and crises that the Lebanese are facing. The first objective of our visit to Lebanon is to express our support for the Lebanese people in these very difficult circumstances in light of the current economic and humanitarian crisis.
 
We discussed with the Patriarch some solutions that the United States can commit to, and its role in helping the government to pursue serious negotiations with the International Monetary Fund. We also discussed how the United States can contribute to supporting the investigation process in the Beirut port explosion and the importance of supporting Judge Tarek Bitar.”
“We emphasized the need to hold transparent parliamentary elections, and until then we hope that the current government will work for the good of the Lebanese people,” Lahoud underlined, noting that these issues were also raised during the delegation’s visits to a number of Lebanese political figures.
In turn, Senator Issa said: "The Lebanese people are ready for work and change, if the government shows a willingness to work seriously."
