Marada Movement leader, Sleiman Frangieh, met Friday at his Bnachii residence, with Uruguayan Ambassador to Lebanon, Ricardo Nario, with whom he discussed an array of local and economic affairs.
During the meeting, Frangieh reportedly highlighted the necessity to bolster the trade exchange between Lebanon and Uruguay, calling to cancer visas between the two countries.
On the electricity crisis, Frangieh maintained that "the solution starts with a political decision."
For his part, Ambassador Nario indicated that his country had witnessed in the past an electricity predicament similar to Lebanon. "We used to suffer from the power rationing; yet we took the decision to resort to alternative energy to produce electricity, and now we export power to the countries we used to import from," he explained.
He also expressed Uruguay's readiness to provide services and assistance in that respect.
On a different note, Nario presented his hos with an invitation to visit Uruguay.
