President Michel Aoun announced Thursday that he “will not allow anyone to seize control of Lebanon,” in a fiery speech during a lunch banquet.
Telling the attendees a fictional story about a little girl and her father, who was a ship captain, Aoun added: “Do not be afraid: we will not abandon the ship and we will rescue all those on board.”
“We are present here and we are not used to abandoning our responsibilities. During a previous era, we confronted tanks, warplanes and cannons and we were not scared. I was here in Baabda next to you,” the president said.
“We will not leave Baabda and we will not allow anyone to seize control of Lebanon,” Aoun added.
