Having conferred with Italian Defense minister Luigi Mondelli while on an official visit to Rome earlier this month, Lebanese Army Chief General Jean Kahwaji reportedly discussed a 5-year plan during which the Italian Army would give a helping hand in reconstructing and reorganizing the Lebanese Military.

Admiral Mantelli reassured Kahwaji to the effect that the Italians will be doing all they could to bolster the Lebanese Army’s defensive and logistical capabilities with Kahwaji thankfully responding in kind; he highly commended the Italians for their peace-keeping role in South Lebanon. 

Kahwaji then inspected the Italian Armed Forces’ Operations’ Room where he boarded with Commander General Marco Berto who proposed comprehensive training programs for the Lebanese Military. 

Kahwaji also briefed Saad Hariri over the Army’s actual counter terrorist drive when he met with him in Rome on Sunday. The purpose is to upbeat security and stability in the country, the General concluded.
