CIR Comment: “Lebanon. The diplomatic crisis in the heart of Middle East”

There is fear that Lebanon, in the midst of economic collapse, will be transformed into a ground of confrontation between Iran and Saudi Arabia. The case rings a very alarming bell for the security and stability of the Mediterranean region. The definition of a clear and strong common European Foreign Policy becomes more and more urgent – writes dr. Giovanni Cascone in his comment “Lebanon. The diplomatic crisis in the heart of Middle East”.
