Lebanon signs deals with UN body over cooperation

Speaker of Parliament Nabih Berri and U.N. Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Lebanon Najat Rochdi signed Monday a partnership compact between the Parliament and the U.N. Country Team in Lebanon (UNCT) to boost bilateral cooperation in key areas and achieve sustainable development, a joint statement said.

This compact aims at “institutionalizing the existing bilateral partnership existing between the two parties and at expanding the scope of cooperation to ensure a coordinated, coherent, and integrated approach to supporting the Lebanese Parliament in achieving necessary reform priorities, with the technical support of the U.N. in Lebanon,” the statement added.

Berri and Rochdi both welcomed “the progress made in strengthening the existing cooperation between the UNCT and the Lebanese Parliament and stressed the importance of fostering and institutionalizing this partnership as well as scaling up joint efforts in instituting reforms,” the statement said.
