The Lebanese Prime Minister, Najib Mikati, pledged that his government would do whatever was required to reconnect what was cut off in Lebanon’s relations with the Arabs.
Mikati’s statements came in a statement in response to press analyzes talking about Lebanon’s relations with the Arab countries, when he received popular figures and delegations who wished him success in his mission and success for the government.
“We hear a lot of press analyzes that deal with Lebanon’s relations with Arab countries, and they have reached the point of some people marketing alleged mediation and absolute negatives in return,” Mikati said.
He added, “The government will take all the necessary steps to reconnect what was cut off in Lebanon’s relations with the Arab brothers, and we know in return the Arab brothers’ keenness to preserve Lebanon’s unity and protect it from any dangers that may surround it.”
He pointed out that Lebanon “has always been a message to embody love and coexistence between religions, and the Arab brothers have always been quick to extricate it from its stumbles, whenever adversity has befallen it, out of their brotherly understanding of the privacy and diversity of its population fabric.”
And the Prime Minister of Lebanon continued: “It is true that we are going through the most difficult stage in the history of Lebanon, and the challenges are great, and people are hoping for an action from the government that will extricate it from the various tragedies it is suffering from, which is something we are well aware of, and we have begun to do what must be done to put things on the path to a solution.”
He said, “In this context, we count on full cooperation within the government, as well as with the Parliament to approve the necessary projects to move the economic wheel and the required reforms process.”
Mikati’s government is facing great challenges, as Lebanon is living in a catastrophic situation in light of the financial crisis, the results of which affected all the medical, hospital, educational, fuel, electricity and communications sectors.
