Lebanon Asked Qatar To Help Lebanese Watch The 2022 World Cup


Lebanon’s Prime Minister, Najib Mikati, asked Qatar on Monday to help the Lebanese watch the 2022 World Cup, as the inflation puts the Cup’s coverage out of reach for most Lebanese people.

PM Mikati also requested, during a meeting with Qatari local and regional media experts and Doha’s Ambassador to Beirut, to facilitate the Lebanese travel to Qatar to attend the awaited World Cup.

Najib Mikati’s request came only a day after the 2022 World Cup trophy landed in Lebanon and was displayed for the first time in Beirut as part of a world tour before opening the cup in November 2022.

The trophy, which was accompanied by Brazilian footballer and football star Juliano Belletti, landed in Lebanon “to inspire a spirit of hope and optimism for a bright future for the youth of the country,” as expressed by Tolga Cebe, the Vice President and General Manager of the Middle East for Coca-Cola.
