SECRETARY TILLERSON: Prime Minister, welcome to the State Department.

PRIME MINISTER HARIRI: Thank you.

SECRETARY TILLERSON: A pleasure to have you.

PRIME MINISTER HARIRI: Thank you.

SECRETARY TILLERSON: So I had a very good working breakfast this morning with Speaker Ryan. We covered a number of important topics, had a lengthy meeting with the Vice President at the White House on some important policy issues today, and now I’m pleased to welcome Prime Minister of Lebanon Hariri here at the State Department. The top of our agenda is going to be, as you would expect, Syria and regional security issues. And I know the prime minister had a very, very positive meeting with President Trump yesterday, and we look forward on kind of building out on some of the details from that meeting.

Thank you all.
