    HE Robert Watkins, Lecture Abstract:

    “In his remarks to the Rotary Club of Kesrouan, Mr. Robert Watkins emphasized the historic relationship that has existed between Lebanon and the UN since the founding of the organization in 1945. Today, Lebanon hosts 24 UN entities on its soil, including the world’s third largest peacekeeping operation, UNIFIL.   With this wide presence, the UN has engaged with the government and people of Lebanon in a wide range of areas, from development, to human rights, security, electoral support and emergency response. He also mentioned how the crisis in Syria is having a profound impact in Lebanon, with the arrival of some 250,000 refugees and a significant economic downturn, not to mention, political implications.”
