Hariri: Lebanon's Stability More Important Than Problems Surrounding Us

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Prime Minister Saad Hariri stressed on Thursday that it is crucial to seek Lebanon's stability first despite the regional crises surrounding it.

“The stage that passed constitutes an awakening for all of us to seek Lebanon's interests first before looking at the problems around us. The problems that surround us are important but Lebanon is more important,” said Hariri on Thursday.

“Our relations with our Arab brothers should be the basis and we must seek all the means to enable Lebanon to have a real disassociation policy, not just in words but also in deeds,” added the Premier.

His remarks came in a speech at the opening of the Annual Arab Banking Conference for 2017 at the Phoenicia Hotel entitled “A Twinning Partnership: Reconstruction and Development”, at the invitation of the Union of Arab Banks.

“Just like Martyr Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, I am glad to be with you today and see the Association of Banks meeting in Beirut so we restore confidence in Lebanon. I thank you for your feelings and assure you that our main concern in Lebanon is stability and this is what we will work for,” stressed Hariri.

Praising the Central Bank Governor Riad Salameh for his ability to maintain Lebanon's monetary stability, he stated: “You have seen the difficulties we faced not only during the past three weeks but also during these last years.

“I pay tribute to the Governor of Central Bank Riad Salameh, who was able, when we politicians disagreed with each other, to fortify the Lebanese pound, so we thank him for his wisdom.”

I see a biased view here

Everyone is obliged to this policy not just Hariri. Look over the fence and see who is there.

No one has declared war on the Christhians in Lebanon...

Secondly all political parties would like to see the refugees taken back to their homeland when it is safe for them to go back.

But right now and interestly to note you do not mention who is next door fighting. They came from Lebanon and are next door helping the President.... i hope you can name who it may be
Or your deliberately diverting
Ones attention.....

This is contributing to the influx of refugees entering Lebanon. I hope you understand...

I am not picking sides here but you are not being logical...

i understand very well the timming of Hariri Crisis...the message was clear to the Head of the Cristhians in the Lebanese political system...stop the process of return of refugies...the Head of State of Lebanon convocated the embassadors of ONU Seguritie Conseil, without autorization of Saudis !!?? to talk about the refugies...the Head of State of Lebanon when we gonna started a visit to same nations in the region to talk about that matter...they want to silence the Cristhians Voice in the Head of Lebanese State...this Hariri Crisis was a HUGE atack against the Cristhians after what is happenning to the Cristhians comunities in the regions...it´s a Daesh atack...convert or die...

"I am not picking sides here but you are not being logical..."
.
not being logical is the existence of 2 million of refugies in Lebanon...this is a insanitie...it´s the priority increase exponential the velocity of return the refugies without delays...everyone know what comming next...the "humanist" moviments demanding that Lebanon started a process of integration, and supporting the constrution of modern mollembeqs in Lebanon...when Hariri stopped or try to stopped the process of refugies return was act of pure terrorism against the political powers of the Cristhians...

when Hariri convocated the Cabinet to explain the reasons of Hariri Crisis and to explain why after the public resignation in Saudi Arabia, the Prime-Minister of Lebanon was incontatable for the political forces in Lebanon...Hariri first must explain what+s happens only then give moral lessons...
