Earlier on Tuesday, the Prime Minister contacted each of Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Abdallah Bou Habib, and Minister of Public Works and Transportation, Ali Hamieh, with whom he agreed to dispatch a ministerial delegation to Damascus, as an expression of solidarity with Syria in light of the dire circumstances it currently endures.

On another level, the Prime Minister held a series of meetings at Grand Serail.

In this context, he welcomed MP Tony Franjieh, MP Qassem Hashem, and MP Ahmad Al-Khair, with whom he discussed the aftermath of the devastating earthquake that hit Syria and Turkey, the presidential deadlock, as well as an array of political affairs.
