Lebanon has been at the forefront of the Coalition’s efforts to defeat Daesh. It is fighting Daesh and other terrorist organisations on its eastern borders, and plays a crucial role within the Coalition curtailing Daesh’s financing and the flow of foreign terrorist fighters, and generates an effective and strong counter message to Daesh’s malicious propaganda.

We are fighting to safeguard our collective values and to demonstrate that obscurantism cannot prevail over humanism.

Mr. Gebran Bassil, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants
