White House says PM Hariri is a trusted partner of US, rejects any efforts to threaten Lebanon’s stability
The United States called Saturday upon all states and parties to respect Lebanon’s sovereignty, independence, and constitutional processes.
 
“In this sensitive time, the United States also rejects any efforts by militias within Lebanon or by any foreign forces to threaten Lebanon’s stability, undermine Lebanese government institutions, or use Lebanon as a base from which to threaten others in the region,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders stressed.

“Prime Minister Saad Hariri has been a trusted partner of the United States in strengthening Lebanese institutions, fighting terrorism, and protecting refugees,” she noted, adding that the US firmly reiterates that the Lebanese Armed Forces and other Lebanese state security forces are the only legitimate security authorities in Lebanon.
