Lebanon, which now buys weapons in the West, is also interested in the supply of arms from Russia, Ambassador of the Lebanese Republic in Russia Chawki Abou Nassar said in an interview with RIA Novosti.
“Now we are looking forward to the execution of contracts. They represent good progress in cooperation between our countries in this area, since Lebanon receives weapons from Western countries: from France and the USA, and supplies from Russia are a new trend. The Russian weapons are effective, and we really need them to resist threats,” – the ambassador said.
“We hope that in the future we will be able to increase the level of interaction between our countries in this sphere”, – he added.
