Aoun Says Lebanon Ready to Grant Citizenship for Lebanese Descendents
President Michel Aoun on Monday said that Lebanon is ready to grant citizenship for the Lebanese descendants wishing to obtain it, the National News agency reported.
"Lebanon needs the support of its sons abroad to be able to withstand challenges at different levels," NNA quoted Aoun as saying.
Lebanon “is adamant about moving forward in preserving security and stability," he added.
Aoun made his remarks during a meeting at Baabda palace with a delegation of the National Federation of Syrian Lebanese American Clubs.
