The meeting, held in the capital city, addressed several pivotal issues including the possibility of establishing an oil refinery in the southern region of the country, enhancing fuel supply, and powering the Ubari power plant through a new gas pipeline.
A statement released by the Presidential Council highlighted that both Al-Koni and Aoun acknowledged the vital importance of the proposed oil refinery in the southern region.
