Commander of the Lebanese Armed Forces, General Jean Kahwaji received on Friday the Commander of the UN Interim Force in Lebanon, General Paolo Serra, with whom he dealt with the situation on the southern border and the relations of cooperation and coordination between the two sides.

Kahwaji also met with the Commander of the Naval Force operating within the UNIFIL, Brazilian Admiral Bombarda Eduardo Walter and the Chinese Military Attaché Colonel Aibang Guan on a farewell visit upon the end of his mission in Lebanon.

Meanwhile, American light arms were supplied Saturday to the Lebanese Army Logistical Brigade, via Beirut Airport with senior officers and members of the U.S. Defense Liaison Office overseeing the arms' delivery.

This last batch of arms’ delivery is a translation of already signed bilateral agreements stipulating weapons’ provisioning of the Lebanese military by the U.S. government.
