Prime Minister Saad Hariri held talks Sunday in Doha with Qatar's emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani.
The meeting was held ahead of the opening of the “Doha Forum” and talks tackled the developments in Lebanon and the region and the bilateral relations, Hariri's office said.
Addressing the Doha Forum later in the day, Hariri said: “The most important thing that our Arab region needs today is stability. There will be no security, development or prosperity without stability.”
“The extremist groups are fully aware of this and are trying to destabilize the whole world. They have become a danger that should be confronted through the cooperation of all countries, societies, religions and cultures,” Hariri added.
The premier cautioned that the economic development of Lebanon is “facing a special difficulty represented by the presence of one and a half million displaced Syrians and half a million Palestinian refugee on its soil.”
“Lebanon will not be able to continue to face the repercussions of this crisis alone,” he warned.
