The Xinhua reported that the Lebanese National News Agency said, Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati called on Tuesday for a national dialogue among the different governing political parties to discuss Lebanon's ties with Gulf countries.

"We need to reach an understanding to strengthen Lebanon's ties with Arab nations, especially Gulf countries, by not offending them or interfering in their internal affairs," Mikati said in a televised speech.

Mikati emphasized the need for Lebanon to disassociate itself from problems in the region to be able to preserve its ties with the Arab world and the international community.
