Kanaan after bloc meeting: Talks about ministerial rift groundless

"The 100-day deadline for the government has started, and every minute counts. For this reason, we have set up a mechanism of coordination between the ministers and deputies of the bloc, as well as between them and the governmental, civil and regional bodies," said the secretary of the Strong Lebanon bloc, MP Ibrahim Kanaan, in the wake of the bloc's weekly meeting.

"Everything said about ministerial rift is groundless. The words uttered by Minister of Defense Elias Bou Saab in Munich are based on more than one Arab and international consensus. He was congratulated on his approach, and we confirm that his speech was not a breach of the ministerial statement," Kanaan said, uttering keenness on ministerial solidarity.

"All that is happening is for the benefit of the country, and the issue of displaced Syrians should not be subject to political friction," the MP stressed on behalf of the bloc.
