Lebanon on Friday was reportedly considering stopping issuing entry visas to Arab citizens at the airport in a bid to prevent any terrorist infiltrations into the country.
The daily An Nahar said contacts in this regard were already underway between the Foreign Ministry and the General Directorate of the General Security Department.
It said Arabs interested in visiting Lebanon would be asked to apply for visas at the Lebanese mission accredited in their countries.
The move comes after several citizens from various Arab nations suspected of having links with the terrorist groups Fatah al-Islam and al-Qaida have been detained in recent weeks.
