Lebanon
Europe   Switzerland has sent 40 pieces of military equipment
Switzerland has sent 40 pieces of military equipment to a former minister in the previous government, but has since been unable to check out these weapons according to agreements signed between the two countries.

"Switzerland wanted to check out these weapons to make sure that they did not go to an unknown party," she said, adding that teams sent from her country only managed to find 9 pieces of these weapons.

The military cooperation between Lebanon and Switzerland will stop until the truth about these weapons is revealed, Kirgoz told LBCI.
