Prime Minister Najib Mikati chaired Tuesday at the Grand Serail the second meeting for the ministerial committee tasked with drafting the state policy statement.
Labor minister, Mustafa Bayram, said that Lebanon’s right to resist the Israeli occupation will be mentioned in the policy statement, which “will also include the socioeconomic needs of the citizens”.
The committee is scheduled to hold a third meeting tomorrow.
Separately, Mikati met respectively with Ambassador Anne Grillo of France, Ambassador Martin Yttervik of Norway, and U.S. Embassy’s Deputy Chief of Mission Richard Michaels.
He also held talks with central bank governor, Riad Salameh.
