Asked about the Lebanese who live in the United Stated he answered “They don’t have any problems but there are many Lebanese people in the U.S who have many relatives in Lebanon, it’s important to enhance this communication between the immigrants and not to forget about their families and their Lebanese origins, we put a high importance on the possibility of building and consolidating this relationship to activate the relations between both countries and both people.”
The U.S Embassy’s statement
Later, the American embassy gave a statement in Lebanon about Connelly’s visit to the minister of industry. The statement included: Today the American ambassador in Lebanon Maura Connelly visited the Minister of Industry Vreij Sabounjia.
