Aoun: Major progress in border talks, corruption battle must continue
President Michel Aoun on Wednesday stressed that Lebanon is “clinging to its rights to its waters and natural resources.”
“It has made major progress in the negotiations to demarcate the southern maritime border, which will continue in order to reach an agreement under the sponsorship of the U.N. and with the mediation of the United States,” Aoun said.
Separately, the President said “the battle against corruption must continue in parallel with the forensic audit into the central bank’s accounts, because there is a group that has looted this country and impoverished its people.”
“It is unacceptable to leave it without accountability and punishment, and the pillars of this group are protecting each other and at the same time obstructing every reformist process,” Aoun went on to say.
