MIKATI MEETS PRESS SYNDICATE COUNCIL DELEGATION: THE COUNCIL OF MINISTERS WILL DEFINITELY CONVENE TO DECIDE UPON URGENT ISSUES

General

Caretaker Prime Minister, Najib Mikati, on Monday announced that “the Council of Ministers will certainly convene to address urgent issues, but there is no quick call to convene a Cabinet session, pending the completion of urgent files that will be placed on the agenda.”

In a dialogue with the Press Syndicate Council today, Caretaker Premier Mikati said: “Among the urgent files that should be decided upon by the Council of Ministers is the public school strike currently in its third week, the file of Lebanon’s obligations towards the United Nations, the conclusion of a donation contract with the World Bank worth 25 million dollars, as well as the waste contracts, wheat issue, and others.”

Moreover, Mikati considered that “the talk about an attempt to take control of Christian positions is surprising and baseless.”

Premier Mikati welcomed on Monday at the Grand Serail a delegation representing the Press Syndicate Council, headed by its Dean Awni El-Kaaki, in the presence of Vice Dean George Solage.
