Ital­ian MP: We’re ea­ger to help af­ter govt formed

The Daily Star (Lebanon) - - LEBANON -

BEIRUT: Le­banon needs to form a govern­ment in or­der to im­ple­ment projects pro­posed by Italy, an Ital­ian MP said Thurs­day, call­ing on “ev­ery­one to make con­ces­sions to save the coun­try,” the state-run Na­tional News Agency re­ported. Dur­ing a visit to Le­banon, Sal­va­tore Capone said, “Sev­eral in­ter­na­tional as­so­ci­a­tions would like to lend a help­ing hand to [our] friend [Le­banon] af­ter a govern­ment is formed.” The NNA re­port did not spec­ify to which projects Capone was re­fer­ring. Italy was among a num­ber of coun­tries and in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions that pledged over $11 bil­lion in grants and soft loans to Le­banon at the CEDRE con­fer­ence in Paris in April, to be used for eco­nomic and in­fra­struc­ture projects. –
