Lebanese PM: Turkey's role in Middle East is indispensable
Lebanon, Beirut, May 4 / Trend R.Hafizoglu /
Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati believes Turkey plays a vital role in politics in the Middle East and has the opportunity to resolve all the Middle East's conflict.
"Turkey's role in solving Middle East issues is indispensable," Mikati told Trend.
He said unlike other countries-mediators in resolving Middle East problems, Ankara does not pursue any goals of its own.
Since early 2011, a number of countries in the Middle East and North Africa, particularly Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen and Libya, has been observing popular discontent, which resulted in riots and protests against the existing regimes in these countries.
The unrest has led to the downfall of the ruling regimes in Egypt and Tunisia. Currently, a fierce struggle between the authorities and armed insurgents continues in Libya.
