Lebanese Foreign Minister Nassif Hitti

BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – The Lebanese media reported on Sunday that the Lebanese Foreign Ministry sent a special summons to the U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon, Dorothy Shea, in light of the related events that took place on Saturday.

LBCI reported that the Lebanese Foreign Minister Nassif Hitti summoned the American Ambassador to the Lebanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs office in Beirut.

According to the LBCI sources, the minister will even meet the American ambassador tomorrow, Monday, at three in the afternoon to inform her that, according to the Vienna Agreement, an ambassador may not interfere in the internal affairs of another country and her speech may not include incitement of the Lebanese people.

On Saturday, a judge issued a decree banning the U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon from making media statements.

The ban came after Shea said on Friday that “the Lebanese do not suffer from Washington’s policy but rather decades of corruption”, stressing that “Washington is one of the biggest supporters of Lebanon.”

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.
