Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim wrote, through his Twitter account, on Sunday, that Lebanon does not need “mediation from outside” to help it get out of its current crisis, considering that it “needs all the parties to sit at the table, to discuss the future of this beautiful country that was entered into.” A person in the sixties is one of the top ten countries in the world. ”
The former Prime Minister of Qatar added that “with most of the Lebanese, especially the middle class, losing all their savings in addition to the deterioration of the Lebanese pound, the continuation of this situation makes life impossible.”
Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim believed that “the politicians of Lebanon and the leaders of their sects today need a place that brings them together and facilitates the dialogue among them. Perhaps they will reach a consensual formula that takes them out of this destructive approach that brought Lebanon to this situation,” noting that “the hoped-for solution is the business of the Lebanese themselves, but the Lebanese must be.” “Whoever agrees on a way out will save the country and its people, as a matter of urgency and speed.”
He also commented on Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s decision to postpone holding the elections that were scheduled for this month, until they were guaranteed to be held in Jerusalem.
Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim said that the delay has brought the Palestinians back to “point zero.” He continued, “Although the reasons that compelled Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to postpone the elections are clear to us, what I want to say is that it is the president’s duty under the current circumstances and at this stage of his life to transfer power in a peaceful and democratic manner.”
The former prime minister of Qatar considered that “the next stage needs a young leadership that can lead the Palestinian people to safety in all areas and discussions.”
