“For the first time we have handed over unified financial figures,” Mikati told an economy conference in Beirut. “We hope we will have a letter of intent soon.”
Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati said the country can not spend any more on subsidies.
High-Sulphur fuel from Iraq is currently the country’s only source of power, he added, providing five hours a day.
