Erdogan: Lebanon’s stability makes Turkey happy

“Have full trust that when Lebanon is happy, Turkey is happy. Whenever Lebanon’s stability and security strengthen, Turkey will be happy,” Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday.

“We followed up on the aggression against Lebanon during the 2006 July War, and we felt your pain. We considered that solidarity [is represented through] our responsibility to rebuild Lebanon,” he said during the inauguration of a Turkish-funded school in the Akkar village of Aidamun.

Erdogan added that Turkey has helped build 38 schools across Lebanon.

The Turkish PM thanked all of those who contributed to building the school in Aidamun.

Erdogan arrived in Beirut on Wednesday for a two-day official visit.
