Lebanese Foreign Minister presents his resignation

On August 3, the Lebanese Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates  Nassif Hitti submitted his resignation .

According to the Lebanese National Media Agency, Hitti  visited the government offices and submitted his resignation to Prime Minister Dr. Hassan Diab.

Hitti said that he decided to resign from his post due to the inability to perform his duties in these fateful circumstances and in the absence of a vision for Lebanon in which he believes in a free, independent and active homeland in his Arab environment and in the world.

Hitti called on the government to reconsider several policies and practices in order to prioritize the country and the citizen.
