Lebanese President Aoun Says Gov’t Cannot Resolve Crisis Overnight, Urges Nation to Monitor Events

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Lebanese government cannot resolve large-scale political and economic issues that have been developing in the country throughout the past 30 years in one stroke, Lebanese President Michel Aoun said in an interview with Sputnik, calling on citizens to closely observe further developments.

The president noted that it is impossible to expect “miracles” from a government that’s been in existence less than 100 years, as Lebanon only became independent in the 1940s.

However, the government is fully determined to implement recently announced economic reforms aimed at tackling the deepening financial crisis, Aoun said, expressing hope that this step would help Lebanon recover.

Lebanon has been suffering from a massive economic crisis since October. Mass protests eventually resulted in a change of the cabinet, but the rallies continued amid the pandemic, as people criticised the new government for lockdown measures.
