Hotels syndicate says tourism won't be affected by Saudi's kidnap

The brief kidnap of a Saudi man in Lebanon will not affect the “promising” summer tourism season, the head of the Syndicate of Hotel Owners in Lebanon, Pierre Achkar, said.

Congratulating security forces on the “swift liberation” of the Saudi citizen, Achkar said such prompt action “sends a clear and firm message to anyone who dares to temper with security.”

“It also reassures the Lebanese and all Arab brothers and foreign visitors,” he added.

And calling on everyone to “remain calm and refrain from circulating pessimistic rumors about the summer season,” Achkar reassured that “the summer tourism season is promising and will not be affected by such a security incident.”
