Politics - Security developments top Grand Serail talks.

NNA - 28/08/2012 - Most recent developments at the domestic scene featured high Tuesday on Grand Serail talks between Prime Minister Najib Mikati and interlocutors.

Justice Minister Shakib Qortbawi, along with Interior and Municipalities Minister Marwan Charbel, met the Prime Minister over security-related talks, especially in the wake of the ever-growing kidnapping spate and rising crime rate.

"The General Prosecutions of different Lebanese areas are exerting utmost efforts to control judicial writs," Qortbawi said, noting "it is now the duty of the Internal Security Forces to get these writs implemented." As for the case of the 11 Lebanese abductees in Syria, the Minister confirmed that said issue was being "calmly" followed up, away from the media limelight.

"This is for the kidnapped citizens' best interest and safe return home," he added.

The Kuwaiti Ambassador to Lebanon, Abdel-Aal al-Qinai, also met with the Prime Minister to relay his country's gratitude to the Prime Minister's sincere efforts, leading to the release of the Kuwaiti national.

Separately, MP Simon Abi Ramia reportedly discussed with the Prime Minister general political and security developments, as well as the repercussions of regional developments on the Lebanese scene.

Moreover, Lebanese-French bilateral relations topped talks between the Lebanese Ambassador to France, Boutros Assaker, and the Prime Minister who is planning to visit the French capital this autumn.
