Mikati pledged to immediately resume negotiations with the International Monetary Fund on a bailout package in hope of rescuing the crisis-hit country from its worst economic meltdown in history.

He also promised that the government will draft a plan to restructure the banking sector in addition to implementing reform measures contained in the French initiative designed to lift Lebanon out of its economic and financial crisis.
