“I reiterate my call for him to put national interests first,” he said.

Miqati commented that the information minister’s personal stances plunged the country into the dangerous position of a possible boycott by nations affiliated with the Gulf Cooperation Council.

The diplomatic crisis put at risk the stability of the government that took office less than two months ago and an escalation against the Lebanese economy.

The chief executive assured that Kordahi’s resignation will help resolve the dispute with the kingdom and its Persian Gulf allies.

He also criticized those close to the Information Minister, Hizbullah and its allies who defend Kordahi’s positions.

“Tthose who think they can impose their opinion with obstructions and political escalations and remove Lebanon from its Arab environment, especially from its ties with Saudi Arabia, are mistaken,” he said.
