A Lebanese official who often travels to Washington to meet with U.S. officials said the superpower has confidence in Prime Minister Tammam Salam's government, which was underscored by a visit from a senior U.S. official to Lebanon this week.This is a belief among Lebanese officials that Blinken's visit was aiming to negate.Blinken's visit will reassure Lebanese officials that the U.S. still has vested interests in Lebanon's stability and will continue to support the country on political and military levels.Messages of support from U.S. officials were also relayed to Interior Minister Nouhad Machnouk during his visit last month to the U.S., where he met with various security officials.The Lebanese official said, however, a recent visit to the U.S. capital left him flummoxed by the American stance toward the ongoing presidential crisis.
