Mikati: Lebanon problems ‘intertwined with Syria’
A+ A-

BEIRUT: Caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati said Tuesday that the situation in Lebanon had become “largely intertwined with the complexity of the situation in Syria,” and that even a new Cabinet would not be enough to solve the problem. 

Mikati, who is currently on a visit to Berlin, noted that renewed negotiations for the formation of an all-inclusive government had come at a key moment regionally, with all sides eager to participate. 

However, he said Lebanon was witnessing overwhelming internal differences that prevented a consensus and mutual understanding being reached. 

Mikati spoke at a meeting with Arab ambassadors to Germany at the invitation of Lebanese Ambassador Mustafa Adib.
