'We hope to finalize the issue of the budget on Friday or before Friday,' Information Minister Jamal al-Jarrah said after the session.

'Things are very good and the ongoing discussion is responsible and based on numbers,' he added.

'There are some financial data and numbers that we will ask from BDL and the armed forces so that they be studied and analyzed tomorrow in order to take decisions,' Jarrah explained.
