Lebanon's Jumblatt: finishing budget more important than 'futile debate'

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanese Druze leader Walid Jumblatt said on Thursday that completing the 2019 draft budget was more important than getting into a “futile debate”.

Lebanon’s government once again missed a self-imposed deadline to agree the state draft budget, scheduling a final session for Friday. A dispute between ministers appears to have caused the delay.
