A senior U.S. diplomat announced that Washington was providing “an additional $67m in new U.S. support for the Lebanese Army”. She also contended that “what Iran is offering here on the energy front is a publicity stunt. A bunch of trucks full of dirty stuff that is not sustainable for the Lebanese people. What we are working on are short, medium and longer-term solutions to the energy issues that have long plagued this country, that are particularly acute now, and then onward toward clean energy in the future”.
