(UPDATE) Aoun meets SSNP delegation: We will adopt corrective path to strengthen economy

President of the Republic General Michel Aoun received a delegation from the Syrian Social Nationalist Party headed by Fares Saad, who stressed that the party stands by the president in his national positions that protected Lebanon and saved the mountain from sedition.

Aoun welcomed the delegation, saying "officials should defuse the mountain, which has historically been a witness of coexistence and it should not be shaken."

He explained that "one of the reasons for the difficult economic situation, resort to rentier economy and neglect of productive economy. We will adopt in the next few days a corrective line to strengthen the economy, and we may see difficult yet necessary measures."

Aoun stressed that "the time we have is narrow. (...) We will overcome the crisis, but we must bear in mind that this treatment takes some time. We will lay the foundations of the solution, and this is the reality of things. We do not intend to hide it from the people as it used to happen before."

President Aoun underlined the importance of unity and coexistence, and that difference in politics exists even within a single party, but it should not become a fundamental problem.
