UNICEF regional director and Swiss Ambassador congratulate Hariri and government on their work

The President of the Council of Ministers Saad Hariri received today at the Grand Serail the Swiss Ambassador to Lebanon Monika Schmutz Kirgöz.
After the meeting, Ambassador Kirgöz said: “This is my official courtesy visit to Prime Minister Hariri after he formed the government, even though I had the chance with my foreign minister to meet him in Brussels at the sidelines of the "Supporting the Future of  Syria" conference. It was important for Switzerland to congratulate him for the new government and all the things that have already been done. This government is working very hard and with determination and it was important for Switzerland to once again underline its support. We belong to the ten biggest donors and   believe in this country and it was very important to underline to the Prime Minister all the things Lebanon and Switzerland have in common and emphasize our partnership. We were among the first ones who came when you were faced with the Syrian refugee crisis and we are still doing a lot, not only for the Syrians but also for the Lebanese host communities. And we are here to stay and to support Lebanon more.”
