Beirut - Prime Minister Hassan Diab said Wednesday that the sacking of the Lebanese Central Bank's governor was not envisaged for the time being, stressing that there will be a new approach to the economic and financial.

"The sacking of Riad Salameh is not currently on the table," Diab told journalists at the Grand Serail.

"There will definitely be a new approach by the government, and we will set a program for the economic and financial committee to address all issues, not just the conditions of banks but also the economic situation in general," the PM indicated.

In response to a question about the ministerial statement, Diab said that the committee tasked with drafting the state policy would convene on Friday and that it would discuss an array of affairs including the Army-People-Resistance equation.

"Let us think wisely about the formula that best suits the current situation," he said.

Asked about the protests, the PM indicated that he was in constant touch with the protesters, adding that he will soon tackle this issue in details.

In response to a question about visiting Dar-al-Fatwa, Diab said the visit would take place soon.
