NNA – Caretaker Prime Minister, Najib Mikati, on Monday held a meeting with Caretaker Minister of Youth and Sports, George Kallas, at the Grand Serail.
Following the meeting, Kallas stated, quot;The precision of the regional situation, coupled with the wars in Gaza and southern Lebanon, necessitates balanced and steadfast national positions represented by political realism. This should be guided by a dual commitment to peace, ending war, and triumph for justice, all while emphasizing the urgency of completing the constitutional institutions by electing a president as soon as possible.
