Prime Minister Najib Mikati considered, at a press conference held at the Grand Serail that the statements of Information Minister George Kordahi had led Lebanon to be boycotted by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Arab Gulf states.

"The country cannot be ran by the language of defiance and arrogance, but rather with a common word that unites the Lebanese people and maintains their unity for the sake of rescuing the country. Whoever believes that he is able to impose his escalatory opinions and keep Lebanon isolated from its Arab depth is mistaken," Mikati affirmed.

He thus called on the Minister of Information "to act as dictated by his conscience, and take the appropriate position by giving priority to national interest."

"All ministers must abide by the ministerial statement, and everything that is said outside these constants is rejected," he stressed.
