Vice President of the European Parliament, Fabio Massimo Castaldo, on Monday highlighted the necessity to help Lebanon withstand the current crisis it is facing amid the ailing conditions in the region.

"The situation in the Middle East is deteriorating; but we cannot have the same approach to all countries, as each region has its particularities," Castaldo told the European Parliament.

"Lebanon is in need of essential reforms, in addition to combatting rampant corruption," he said.

"But this cannot be achieved in a short time," he added.

Castaldo continued that the massive presence of displaced Syrians in Lebanon was the most dangerous challenge for the country.

"I hereby implore the European Commission to take this critical cause seriously, and to side by Lebanon," he underlined.
