Youth and Sports Minister:

The President met Youth and Sports Minister, Dr. George Kallas.

Statement:

After the meeting, Minister Kallas made the following statement:

“I had the honor to visit His Excellency the President. I presented a report on the visits I made to Iraq, Egypt, the UAE and Turkey in response to the official invitations of the Ministers of Youth and Sports.

I also addressed matters related to sports and youth affairs and took the President’s directives on the theme of the celebration “Beirut, Capital of Arab Youth 2022”. This program’s schedule is to be announced in detail, when the specified credit is disbursed from the General Secretariat of the Council of Arab Youth and Sports Ministers in the League of Arab States.

On the occasion of the Army Day on the 1st of August, I offered to His Excellency, as Commander in Chief of Armed Forces, my congratulations, wishing Lebanon all the best and that it regain its health with the strength of the army and the guarantee of the security forces and the efforts of activists.

I asked His Excellency to ensure that the youth have a respectable position in any speech he addresses to the Lebanese, and I hoped from the position of my experience and responsibility that the state would think about re-working the service of science under any name, so that we do not have generations that diverge instead of converging and interacting.

His Excellency expressed his hope that Lebanon will have a new government and a new President will be elected, in order to complete the constitutional formula and mechanism that distributes the powers of government. Only with this, Lebanon will regain its health and its position among the countries of the world”.
