UAE supports Saudi ban on Lebanese products


The UAE has backed Saudi Arabia’s decision to ban agricultural products from Lebanon after they found it was being used to smuggle drugs into the Kingdom.

In a statement on Sunday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC) affirmed its support for measures taken by the Kingdom to protect the society from drug traffickers.

It urged government bodies to develop and use technology to combat organised crime to protect the safety and stability of the region.
