The EU High Representative's visit to Beirut this week underscored Lebanon's importance to European actors, according to Angelina Eichhorst, the EU's ambassador to Lebanon.High Representative Federica Mogherini's trip was "very unusual," given that the current European Commission took office only last month, Eichhorst said. In meetings with high-ranking politicians Tuesday, Mogherini described Lebanon as "at a crossroads," she said, adding that the High Representative had insisted on the importance of functional state institutions.Salam met Mogherini and EU President Jean-Claude Juncker two weeks ago in Brussels, and he is currently in Paris in what Eichhorst called "a very important visit".Moreover, Eichhorst said Lebanon will definitely be discussed at meeting of EU foreign ministers this Sunday.
