Lebanon touts relations with Cyprus after Hezbollah chief’s threats

After the Hezbollah leader’s threats against Cyprus, Lebanon’s foreign ministry says that “relations between Lebanon and Cyprus are based on a rich history of diplomatic cooperation.”

Contacts and consultations continue between the two countries “at the highest levels,” a foreign ministry statement says, without making specific reference to Hassan Nasrallah’s remarks.

In a conversation with his Cyprus counterpart, Foreign Minister Abdallah Bou Habib expressed “Lebanon’s constant reliance on the positive role that Cyprus plays in supporting regional stability,” Lebanon’s National News Agency reports.
