NNA - Social Affairs Minister, Richard Kouyoumjian, Saturday, urged the government to pay the state's dues to social welfare associations for fear of a worsening situation.

He said via his Twitter account: "To those who doubt our pressing demands to pay the accumulating dues to welfare associations and institutions that form a social safety net for our community, we say that Sesobel's decision cuts all uncertainty. I refuse to turn the Ministry of Social Affairs into a mere witness to the collapse of welfare institutions. Hence, I call for the release of state dues; otherwise the worst is yet to come!"
