NNA - UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon, Ms. Joanna Wronecka, on Thursday posted a series of tweets:

“Elections are an opportunity that should not be missed to improve women’s representation in Parliament and in public life.”

“I thank Minister of Justice Henri Khoury for a fruitful discussion today on the role of the judiciary and the challenges it faces. The swift investigation into the Beirut port explosion will be benchmark for independent and effective judiciary in Lebanon.”

“I met with Defense Minister Maurice Sleem. We discussed the importance of safeguarding Lebanon 's security and stability during this critical period, the UN’s commitment to supporting the Lebanese Army, and its vital importance to Resolution1701.”

“With Finance Minister Youssef Khalil we discussed today the financial and economic crisis and its painful impact on the Lebanese people. Lebanon now needs quick steps to stabilize the situation, institute reforms with a strong social safety net to pave the way for recovery.”
