Hariri receives Bulgarian delegation and Muslim World League Secretary General
Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri hoped that the positive atmosphere will prevail in order to reach a solution in the issue of the government formation. He said: I hope that this will happen today before tomorrow. In my opinion, all political parties should calm down and everything could be solved.
Hariri's stance came in response to a question from a journalist during his patronage this evening at the opening ceremony of the 9th edition of the Beirut Art Fair at the Sea Side Arena.
Asked Will you pursue contacts to resolve the issue of the government formation, he replied: hopefully.
Hariri received this evening at the Center House the president of the ABV Party and former Bulgarian Minister of Interior Rumen Petkov, accompanied by the head of the Lebanese-Bulgarian business council Ahmed Alameddine.
Petkov said after the meeting: We agreed to enhance the relations between ABV and the Future movement, especially between the youth of the two parties. I also invited Prime Minister Hariri to visit Bulgaria. Mr. Alameddine and the Lebanese-Bulgarian business council are going to have a business conference in Sofia. We hope to have Prime Minister Hariri as a guest in Sofia. It will be good for Lebanon and Bulgaria.
Hariri also received the Secretary General of the Muslim World League, Dr. Mohammed bin Abdul-Karim Al-Issa, in the presence of Mohammed Al-Sammak. During the meeting, Al-Issa presented to Prime Minister Hariri a gift, a piece of the Kiswah (the cloth covering the Kaaba) and a Quran. Talks continued over dinner.
