After replacing the Emirati flag of the with the Kuwaiti flag, Presidency of the Council of Ministers apologizes

The Directorate of Protocols and Public Relations in the Presidency of the Council of Ministers issued a statement saying: “In response to what is being circulated on social networks regarding replacing the Emirati flag with the Kuwaiti flag, the Directorate of Protocol and Public Relations in the Presidency of the Council of Ministers would like clarify that during the inaugural opening of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Hospital Center, which was donated by the United Arab Emirates, the UAE flags were available inside and outside the center, and on the main notice board as shown by the distributed pictures, but an error occurred as a result of confusion among one of the employees regarding the flag that was placed on the platform next to the Lebanese flag, which required clarification and apology.

While Prime Minister Najib Mikati was inaugurating the Emirati field hospital, the Kuwaiti flag was raised instead of the Emirati flag, attached to the Lebanese flag, which prompted the Emiratis to raise question marks about “authorizing unqualified people in the details of the state.” The Lebanese also criticized the matter and ridiculed such a government, saying: What a farce?
