Azour gives Change MPs 'diplomatic' answers on Hezbollah arms
Presidential candidate Jihad Azour held separate Zoom meetings overnight with a number of Change MPs, media reports said.
“The MPs asked him about his stance on the October 17 uprising and how he would deal with the sovereign issues, Hezbollah’s arms, the judicial files, the probe in the Beirut port blast case, the recovery plan and other matters,” the Nidaa al-Watan newspaper reported on Friday.
“Azour used diplomacy to avoid giving direct answers to some matters in question, including Hezbollah’s arms, saying all parties should meet around a dialogue table to discuss the arms’ future,” the daily said.
“As for exiting the crisis that Lebanon is going through, he said that it is necessary to reach an agreement with the International Monetary Fund and to begin implementing the reforms needed within the recovery plan,” the newspaper added.
