Prime Minister Najib Miqati said Friday that “we have started doing what needs to be done to resolve things,” and called for full cooperation in Cabinet and with parliament.
Miqati said in a statement, after meeting with key figures in Tripoli, that “people are expecting from the government to save them from their suffering.”
He stressed that the government needs “support” to implement its ministerial statement, and achieve its main political, economic, and social tasks.
“We are counting on full cooperation in Cabinet and with parliament to approve the necessary projects and to make the required reforms,” Miqati stated.
He added that the government is keen on “Lebanon’s higher interest that can’t be achieved without attaining stability, unity and civil peace,” and strengthening Lebanon’s relations with its brothers and friends in the Arab countries and the world.
He addressed the citizens of Tripoli with affectionate words, saying that “Tripoli is the start and the end,” and promising that Tripoli, like all the other regions, will receive “the care of the state.”
