Sleiman meets Kardel, says justifications obstructing cabinet formation no longer valid

Former Lebanese President Michel Sleiman met on Monday with Acting UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon, Pernille Dahler Kardel.

"The rationale behind obstructing the formation of a new government is no longer valid, especially after the approval of the majority of the political parties of the distribution of ministerial quotas, Sleiman said during his meeting with Kardel.

The cabinet formation process must be stepped up because the Lebanese can no longer endure any delay, and the debilitating economy requires a government that is capable of aptly handling the situation, Sleiman added.

He also capitalized on the importance of giving Syrian refugees the necessary international attention to ensure their return to their country, and to work on the reconstruction of Syria with Syrian hands.
