Prime Minister Najib Miqati stressed on Tuesday that Lebanese foes agreed to preserve the country's stability and safeguard it from the negative repercussions surrounding it.
"The international community should understand the Lebanese state's decision to disassociate the country from the developments in the region," Miqati told U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly.
The PM tackled with Clinton the importance of boosting the military aid for the Lebanese army and offering it all the possible support to enable it to carry out its duties.
Miqati pointed out during the meeting that the country's sovereignty is being continuously violated by Israel.
He called on the U.S. to exert efforts to halt the endeavors carried out by Israel.
