Caretaker Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Minister, Gebran Bassil, met on Wednesday with National Dialogue Party leader, Foaud Makhzoumi.
During the meeting, Makhzoumi stressed the importance of facilitating Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri's mission forming the lengthily awaited cabinet, especially in light of the crucial economic situation in Lebanon.
"Bolstering the economic situation falls in our joint interest. We all hope that the Minister's foreign tours and efforts would help pave the way for new investment opportunities in Lebanon," Makhzoumi said.
On another level, Bassil met today with Moroccan Ambassador to Lebanon, Mohammed Karin. Talks reportedly touched on the preparations underway for the football game that is set to take place between a group of Lebanese expatriates and a group of Foreign Ministry employees, next Friday and Saturday, at Foaud Shehab Stadium.
This event will be taking place under the patronage of Minister Bassil, in cooperation with the Ministry of Tourism and the Moroccan Embassy, due to the fact that the Royal Moroccan Airlines is the official sponsor of this event.
It is to note that Minister Bassil will be taking part in the final football match on Saturday against a group of Lebanese Expatriates.
Bassil separately met with Japanese Ambassador to Lebanon, Matahiro Yamaguchi, who requested the help and support of the Lebanese government helping Japan host "EXPO 2025", which will be held in the Japanese city of Osaka.
Bassil also received the credentials of the newly appointed Australian Ambassador to Lebanon, Rebecca Grindlay.
