PM Mikati: UNESCO conference reaffirms that Saudi Arabia has not left Lebanon

Prime Minister-designate Najib Mikati stressed that “the Taif Agreement is very important because it is the cornerstone for ending the civil war in Lebanon nearly 30 years ago, and that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has not left Lebanon and is on its side.”

“This day’s symbolism is very important, and the conference held reaffirms that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has not left Lebanon, and the large presence here indicates the confirmation of the contents of the Taif Agreement, which is still the most suitable agreement for Lebanon,” Mikati added while attending the “National Conference on the 33rd Anniversary of the Taif Agreement” at UNESCO palace this morning.

In response to a question, Mikati said: “We in the government are keen to carry out our duties, and because the constitution and laws stipulate the conduct of caretaking business, we will do it with honesty, responsibility and a sense of patriotism, and I do not think that any minister will fail in this national role.”
