Miqati Talks Electricity with Kuwait, Says Cabinet Won't be Conflict Arena
Prime Minister Najib Miqati has said that since his designation as premier he has been communicating with Arab funds in order to reactivate support projects for Lebanon, noting that he talked to Kuwait to “revive a soft, long-term loan for accomplishing the electricity plan and building plants.”
Kuwait “has always been at the forefront of supporting Lebanon” and “has provided it with urgent and necessary aid during the major crises,” Miqati said in an interview with the Kuwaiti al-Jarida newspaper.
As for his government, the premier said it will not “deal with politics.”
“It is not the time for it now. We should rather work to accomplish things regardless of the talk of the one- and two-third shares and all these analyses,” Miqati added.
He stressed that he will not allow Cabinet to “turn into an arena for conflicts or disputes.”
“The President and I agree that it is necessary to work in full harmony to rescue the country. The government’s success is in his interest and it is also in my interest and the interest of Lebanon and the Lebanese,” Miqati added.
