Report: Ibrahim's Visit to Kuwait Reflects 'Serious Attempt to Rescue Country'


General Security chief Abbas Ibrahim’s ongoing visit to Kuwait reflects “a serious attempt to rescue the country,” informed sources said.

“The visit’s atmosphere is positive and it is aimed at organizing means that contribute to overcoming the crisis,” sources informed on the visit told LBCI television.

Expressing optimism over the expected results from the visit, the sources noted that “there is a serious attempt to rescue the country, away from traditional methods.”

“This path is being carved at the directions of President Michel Aoun,” the sources added.

Ibrahim had arrived in Kuwait on Sunday and is scheduled to hold meetings on Monday.

His visit to the Gulf nation reportedly follows phone talks between Aoun and Kuwait’s ruler Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed al-Sabah.

Can someone please explain to me, in simple language, how "Ibrahim's Visit to Kuwait Reflects 'Serious Attempt to Rescue Country'"
Surely this is the domain of the Prime Minister, the Foreign Minister, or the Finance Minister, unless, of course, he is planning a coup.

Abbas Ibrahim is one of them, one of those who robbed the country over the years and amassed fortunes at our expense.

What incentive does Kuwait have to provide economic relief to Lebanon? Lebanon is not allied with Kuwait's interests and in fact a destabilized Lebanon may advantage Kuwait if it weakens Hezbollah. Also, oil prices and demand are down reducing Kuwait's resources. I don't see this happening.

Kuwait. DO NOT fall for this trap. DO NOT give a single Dinar. Stand your ground. This political class MUST be brought down to it's knees and be removed from power. Enough is enough.

I this a joke? Doesn't Michel Aoun check before sending Abbas Ibrahim on a fool's errand to Kuwait?
