Syria to allow donations from Arab countries to reach Lebanon through its territories

Syrian ambassador to Lebanon Ali Abdel Karim Ali said on Friday that his country will cooperate with Lebanon by allowing donations from Arab countries to reach Beirut through Syria, the National News Agency reported.

Ali’s remarks came during his meeting with Lebanese Foreign Affairs Minister Charbel Wehbi.

Ali said Syria is keen on cooperating with Lebanon because both countries have common interests especially in the security area.

“We should cooperate in the security area to confront any conspiracies being prepared in both countries,” Ali said.

Lebanon has been receiving donations from different countries following the explosions that rocked Beirut’s port on Aug. 4.
