A source close to the Lebanese Presidency meanwhile told Kuwait’s al-Jarida newspaper that Ibrahim’s visit follows “contacts on the highest level between the two countries.”

The consultations “tackled the Lebanese situation and the economic and social deterioration,” the source said.

The visit aims to explore means to “spare Lebanon a free fall towards the abyss,” the source added, noting that Ibrahim will not carry “specific Lebanese demands.”

“Any Kuwaiti assistance to Lebanon is to be decided by Kuwait itself,” the source went on to say.

Ibrahim is scheduled to arrived in Kuwait on Sunday.
