Mikati meets with French Senator, Arab Doctors Union SecretaryGeneral: Addressing waste crisis in Tripoli is a priority

Former Prime Minister, Najib Miktati, met on Sunday with French Senator Nathalie Guillier who visited him at his Tripoli residence accompanied by Omar Harfoush, with talks reportedly touching on ways of resolving the waste crisis in Tripoli.

Mikati stressed during the meeting that "priority is to address the waste crisis in Tripoli, which has a worrying impact on public health and the environment," highlighting the need for efforts to be combined in order to develop a unified vision to solve this issue. He confirmed his support to any compatible solution agreed upon by experts, adding that he respects the different views on the matter.

Mikati later received the Secretary-General of the Arab Doctors Union, Ossama Reslan, accompanied by Doctors Syndicate Dean in Tripoli, Omar Ayyash, who said on emerging that talks touched on the logistical preparations for the 44th Scientific Medical Conference to be organized by the Union, which will witness a meeting of the General Secretariat and the Supreme Council of the Union of Arab Doctors on its sidelines.

"The Conference will be held between 28 February and the first two days of next March, under the auspices of Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri, and former PM Mikati has privileged us with hosting the special sessions of the Secretariat and fully supporting the Conference in line with his continuous support for anything related to Tripoli and Lebanon," said Ayyash.

In turn, Reslan indicated that "the visit to former PM Mikati gives a strong impetus to the Arab Doctors' Union. In fact, the meeting of participating doctors from 17 Arab countries in Tripoli has a good impact and reflects the positive efforts of the Tripoli Doctors Syndicate with its Arab brethrens to launch scientific and professional activities."
