Lebanon's Hariri in Egypt to discuss economics, Arab-Israeli crisis
Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri arrived in Cairo Monday, June 25, for talks with Egyptian leaders about bilateral economic cooperation and the Arab-Israeli crisis, Egyptian officials said.
Hariri and Egyptian Prime Minister Atef Ebeid will co-chair a meeting of a standing joint commission on promoting economic cooperation between the two Arab countries, officials said.
The joint commission, which was set up in 1996, will meet both Monday and Tuesday in Cairo.
The Lebanese premier will also meet Tuesday with Egyptian Hosni Mubarak to discuss the situation in the Middle East, especially the violence in the Palestinian territories, a source close to Mubarak said. ― (AFP, Cairo)
