Kordahi Announces His Resignation: Lebanon’s Interests Are More Important Than My Position

Information Minister, George Kordahi, on Friday announced in a press conference held at the Ministry of Information his resignation from his ministerial position.

“I have decided to give up my ministerial post for the mere fact that Lebanon is more important than my position. I do not accept to be used as a reason to harm the Lebanese residing in Gulf countries because the interests of my country and my loved ones are way above my personal ones,” Kordahi said.

“My story has become known, so I do not think that there is a need to delve again into its details. The opinions I had voiced in the famous interview are not binding to the Lebanese government, and the campaigns against me and my family have bothered me a lot,” Kordahi added.

“I had found it only logical, but more so a national duty, to refuse calls for my resignation in an attempt to say that Lebanon does not deserve this treatment and that there are people in Lebanon who still enjoy pride and dignity. However, those who stood against me are the very same ones who have been carrying slogans of freedom, sovereignty, and independence,” Kordahi added in regret.

“I had been informed by Prime Minister, Najib Mikati, that French President Emanuel Macron is scheduled to travel to Saudi Arabia and that France would like me to resign before Macron’s visit to the KSA. In order to take advantage of this promising opportunity by President Marcon, I’m here to tell you that Lebanon is more important than George Kordahi and that the interests of the Lebanese are more important than my position,” he added.

“I’ve decided to give up my position, and I wish the government success and the best of relations between Lebanon and its Arab surroundings, especially Gulf countries,” Kordahi concluded.
