Hariri Cancels Davos Trip to Resume Govt. Talks

Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri has canceled a trip to Davos and is expected to resume talks aiming to end the government formation gridlock, al-Joumhouria daily reported on Monday.

Hariri will resume consultations with various political parties. A few days ago he held talks with Progressive Socialist Party leader ex-MP Walid Jumblat, and on the sidelines of Beirut’s economic summit with ex-PMs Tammam Salam and Fouad Siniora.

The Premier was scheduled to participate in the World Economic Forum in Davos in Switzerland which runs from January 22-25.
