Fawzi Salloukh is the current Foreign Minister of Lebanon. He has been in this position since July 19, 2005.

Salloukh was born in 1931 in Qammatieh, Lebanon. Salloukh graduated from the American University of Beirut in 1954 with a Diploma in Political Science.

Salloukh is said by some to be closely allied with Hizbullah, despite little substance to these claims. Before taking up his ministerial position Salloukh was the Secretary General of the Islamic University in Lebanon from 1998 to 2005. Salloukh is a Lebanese career diplomat who served as Ambassador to Sierra Leone (1964-1971), Nigeria (1978-1985), Algeria (1985-1987), Austria (1990-1994), and Belgium (1994-1995). A minister never afraid of speaking his mind, he has had verbal tangles with the likes of George W. Bush and continues to be a well respected political figure in Lebanon.
