Cabinet concluded Thursday's session without reaching any agreement on the controversial waste-management file, with some politicians claiming that Prime Minister Tammam Salam will refrain from calling for another session until a solution is reached.After a moment of silence over the death of former Prime Minister Omar Karami who succumbed to a long illness last week, and after condemning the assault that killed 12 people Wednesday at the Paris offices of weekly satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, Prime Minister Tammam Salam opened Thursday's Cabinet session with the waste-management controversy, according to Information Minister Ramzi Joreige, who spoke after in the meeting. While Economy Minister Alain Hakim said that the Cabinet would hold open-ended sessions until an understanding was reached, Agriculture Minister Akram Chehayeb disagreed, saying that Cabinet would not convene until the issue was resolved between the ministers.
