Budget Approval Drags On, Cabinet to Continue Debate on Monday

Cabinet again failed to approve the 2010 state budget and decided to continue debate on the issue in a session to be at Baabda Palace on Monday.

Information Minister Tareq Mitri told reporters that Transportation Minister Ghazi Aridi briefed Cabinet on the agreement reached between Middle East Airlines and the Pilots Union.

Mitri thanked President Michel Suleiman, Prime Minister Saad Hariri and labor Minister Butros Harb as well as all those who contributed to efforts to reach a deal that preserved the interests of both MEA and the rights of the pilots.

Regarding teachers' refusal to correct official exams unless government meets their demands, Mitri reiterated Cabinet's decision which rejected the boycott.
