The Energy Ministry and Siemens agreed Monday to cooperate on developing ideas to improve Lebanon's electricity sector, with the ministry seeking to clear up rumors that it previously rejected an offer from the German company to establish power plants in the country. Caretaker Energy Minister Cesar Abi Khalil and Siemens Middle East CEO Dietmar Siersdorfer held a joint news conference after Abi Khalil met a delegation from the company. In the news conference Monday, Abi Khalil stressed that Siemens had not made any proposals, and that discussions were limited to approaches to developing the electricity sector.Neither Abi Khalil nor Siersdorfer took questions during the news conference, and they said no further details would be provided on Siemens' ideas for enhancing Lebanon's long-crippled electricity sector for the time being.
