Miqati Meets Aoun, Says Agreed with Him on All Issues


Prime Minister Najib Miqati held talks Tuesday at the Baabda Palace with President Michel Aoun.

“I agreed with President Aoun on the various matters and we’ll meet next week in a Cabinet session on the state budget and urgent living issues,” Miqati said after the meeting.

It will be Cabinet’s first session since October 14, when a stormy government meeting was held in which Hizbullah and the Amal Movement demanded the removal of Beirut port blast investigator Judge Tarek Bitar.

Miqati did not call for a Cabinet session after that seeing as it would have been boycotted by the two Shiite Parties.

Hizbullah and Amal announced Saturday in a joint statement that they have decided to return to Cabinet to take part in approving the state budget and the economic recovery plan, citing the dire economic and social situations in the country.
