Khalil tells Banks' Association delegation 'Ministry of Finance never covers illicit wages'

NNA - Caretaker Minister of Finance, Ali Hassan Khalil, on Wednesday welcomed a delegation from the Association of Banks in Lebanon, headed by Joseph Tarbay.


The delegation briefed the Minister on the financial and banking situation, and on the challenges facing Lebanon at this level.


'This underlines the need to strengthen stability and accelerate the formation of the government, which seems more urgent than ever,' a statement by Khalil's press office said.


In response to a question on employment, the Minister confirmed that the Ministry of Finance never covered illicit wages that contradict with adopted norms.


'Those who are questioning this matter should review the Council of Ministers' decisions,' Khalil said.
