Qa-71, 28 July 2020, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy, In Response To A Question Regarding The Allegations Of Some Lebanese Politicians About Turkey
The allegations expressed by some Lebanese politicians that Turkey has supported the demonstrations in northern Lebanon and aims to enhance its influence in this region of Lebanon, are devoid of common sense. Such comments made in bad faith cannot be taken seriously.
Turkey attaches great importance to the unity and integrity of Lebanon, as well as its peace and stability. Those voicing these allegations are in a position to be well aware of who consider Lebanon as their backyard and intervene in the internal affairs of this country.
