 Khalil: To declare state of emergency to reassure people

NNA - Minister of Finance, Ali Hassan Khalil, highlighted the necessity to declare a state of political and economic emergency with the positive intention of reassuring the Lebanese people.


'The current stage necessitates the declaration of a state of political and economic emergency; and by state of emergency, I do not mean negative connotations but positive purport instead,' Khalil said, explaining that such declaration will reassure people over the state institutions' ability to approach all dossiers related to social and economic security.


Moreover, he highlighted the necessity to implement the economic paper agreed over during the recent economic meeting in Baabda palace.


Khalil made these remarks during a ceremony in honor of graduates, held by Amal Movement in the southern town of Ghaziyeh.
