Zaki: Kordahi’s resignation could have defused the crisis

After his meeting with Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri, Assistant Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, Hossam Zaki, confirmed that “the meeting was friendly and frank, and the aim of visiting Beirut is not to propose a solution to Lebanon’s crisis with the Gulf, and dealing with this matter must be accurate.”

Zaki pointed out that “with regard to the current crisis, there were no messages, and the government sessions were suspended for reasons that everyone knows, and there is a question mark on resolving this disruption, and my focus today is on the crisis of the relationship with the Gulf states.”

He added, “The resignation of Information Minister George Kordahi has been raised somewhat, and President Michel Aoun is keen on the relationship with Saudi Arabia and is counting on Minister Kordahi’s patriotic sense.”

Zaki pointed out that “Kordahi’s resignation could have defused the crisis from the beginning.”

Zaki, who is in Beirut and is holding meetings on this crisis, has so far met with President Michel Aoun, Prime Minister Najib Mikati and Foreign Minister Abdullah Bouhabib.
