Lebanese caretaker Prime Minister Hassan Diab has responded to a report by the Al-Akhbar newspaper saying that he had given his CV to Qatari officials.
In a statement on Wednesday, Diab‘s media office said that the newspaper, which it didn’t name, had dealt with the official’s visit to Qatar “lightly.”
This, the statement added, was “an attempt to offend the content and the results of the discussions that took place with Qatari officials, especially His Highness Prince Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, regarding helping Lebanon in these difficult circumstances it is going through.”
“It is important for the media office to affirm that what the newspaper mentioned is too ridiculous to deserve a response.”
