Prime Minister-designate Najib Mikati held talks Thursday in Baabda with President Michel Aoun.
Al-Jadeed television said the focus of the meeting was Mikati’s asking of permission from Aoun to travel to Britain to take part in Queen Elizabeth’s funeral and to New You to represent Lebanon at the U.N. General Assembly meetings.
The sea border demarcation file was also discussed during the meeting, al-Jadeed added.
Joking with reporters while leaving the Baanda Palace, Mikati said: “In my next visit, I will stay here until I form a government. I will not leave, I will sleep here!”
