BEIRUT, July 14 (Xinhua) — Lebanese Prime Minister Hassan Diab said on Tuesday that negotiations with Qatar, Kuwait and Iraq to provide support for Lebanon have seen positive developments lately, the National News Agency reported.
“We are doing our best to alleviate the burden of the crisis on citizens,” Diab said at the beginning of the cabinet’s meeting at Baabda Palace.
He also accused some political parties in Lebanon of trying to persuade Gulf countries not to offer support to the current Lebanese cabinet.
Diab has previously denounced some parties standing in the way of the current cabinet’s achievements. These parties have been calling the government “Hezbollah-dominated.”
The prime minister denied these allegations, saying some want this cabinet to resign “for them to control the government and adopt biased policies that are in line with their interests and those of the United States.” Enditem
