Justice Minister Salim Jreissati on Friday received at his ministerial office outgoing Turkish Ambassador Cagatay Erciyes, who came on a farewell visit at the end of his diplomatic mission in Lebanon.

On emerging, Minister Jreissati wished Ambassador Erciyes all success in his new diplomatic post at the Turkish Foreign Ministry in Ankara.

The Minister said that the visit was a chance to dwell on the Reina nightclub’s terror attack which claimed the lives of innocent Lebanese citizens, in view of the latest legal procedures concerning compensations in this regard.

Jreissati said that the departing Ambassador expressed the Turkish authorities’ readiness to assist the Lebanese State in this regard as much as possible.

Ambassador Erciyez said they held a tour d’horizon over joint cooperation between the Lebanese and Turkish Justice Ministries.
