The Lebanese Minister of State for Combating Corruption, Nicola Tueni, said on Thursday that his government is in the process of opening the Lebanese border to Iraqis and vice versa. He expressed hope that "a solution will be found for the Lebanese merchants and industrialists who deal with Iraq."
"What has been reached with the Iraqi authorities is that all the debts from 2013 until today will be paid under contractual terms that have been contracted and this eliminates a large part of the problem," Toni said, according to Lebanese media.
"We are currently in the process of opening the Iraqi border to the Lebanese and the Lebanese border to the Iraqis," he said.
