Italy’s premier urges Lebanon to form Cabinet, start reforms

Italy’s prime minister said Tuesday his country will support Lebanon’s economic and social growth, expressing hopes that a new government is formed quickly — one that would start the reconstruction process in the wake of last month’s Beirut explosion and implement badly needed reforms. Giuseppe Conte is the latest senior foreign official to visit Lebanon after the Aug. 4 blast in Beirut’s port that killed 192 people, wounded more than 6,000 and caused wide destruction and damages, estimated in billions of dollars. Italy, one of Lebanon’s largest trade partners, sent aid in the immediate aftermath of the explosion.
