Caretaker Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Gebran Bassil, currently on an official visit to Poland, discussed with senior Polish officials the possibility of exporting Lebanese products to Poland.
Marking the first visit of a Lebanese Minister to Poland since 40 years, the Minister and his accompanying Lebanese met with the country's Minister of Investment and Economic development, Janusz Piechoncinski, and Minister of Agriculture, Jan Krzysztof Ardanowski, with whom they broached a cooperation program between both countries' chambers of commerce, industry and agriculture, paving the way for mutual agricultural investments.
In the wake of the meeting, Piechoncinski considered Syrian refugees a burden for Lebanon, stressing their right of return to their country.
In turn, Ardanowski affirmed that his country was ready to "import Lebanese products, including olive oil, cheese and milk, and some kinds of fruits that are not planted in Poland."
It has also been agreed to have Lebanon partake in Poland's Food and Agriculture Great Exhibition, to be held in Poland next May, with Lebanon being the guest of honor.
It is to note that Minister Bassil will be winding up his visit today with a series of meetings with Poland's Ministers of State for Refugee Affairs, Presidential Affairs, Foreign Affairs, and the President of the Polish Senate.
