Lebanese President Michel Sleiman is in Washington today for an Oval Office ziyaara with President Barack Obama. Here’s what White House press secretary Robert Gibbs had to say about the visit:
“The president looks forward to consulting with President Sleiman on a broad range of issues of mutual concern, including efforts to strengthen the bilateral relationship between the United States and Lebanon, achieve a comprehensive regional peace and implement relevant UN Security Council resolutions.”
We’ll have more coverage here this evening, once the bilateral relationship has been strengthened, comprehensive regional peace has been achieved, and relevant UN Security Council resolutions have been implemented.
Until then, here’s AP’s pre-game commentary on the meet-up.
