Hariri Urges Calm Political Rhetoricإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Prime Minister Saad Hariri chaired a Cabinet meeting on Thursday at the Grand Serail where he criticized media reports picturing “sharp differences” among political parties over contentious issues, saying that things are being exaggerated.
“Anyone who sees the sharp statements circulated in media outlets gets the opinion that political parties are deeply divided among themselves,” said Hariri at the beginning of the meeting.
“But the truth and reality are quite different. The Cabinet discusses many issues and takes decisions that concern the people's affairs and the country,” he said.
Hariri said although political parties have different points of view and believe in addressing issues from different perspectives, but the media is “not serving the people nor the country's interest.”
“I wish everyone calms political rhetoric. Solutions can be found through dialogue and quiet discussion,” he concluded.
