Jumblat wants constructive dialogue with Gulf states

Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblat has stressed on Lebanon's deeply-rooted Arab affiliation.

He told the PSP's al-Anbaa news portal, in remarks published Monday, that fixing the relations with the Gulf Cooperation Council is a "high priority."

He said that every effort must be put to "return Lebanon to the Arab fold," and urged the government for positive dialogue with the GCC countries.

In a social media statement on Monday Jumblat slammed the government, accusing it of ignoring the electricity file and the ration card.

"This government has decided to completely blackout the electricity file after promises about Egyptian gas and Jordanian electricity," he said.
