In implementation of the directives of HH the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, the State of Qatar has announced that it has provided USD 60 million in support to the Lebanese Army.

The announcement coincided with HE Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Chairman of Qatar Fund For Development (QFFD) Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani who is visiting the Republic of Lebanon to attend the Arab Foreign Ministers Consultative Meeting, called upon by Lebanon.
