Lebanon - President of the Republic, General Michel Aoun, on Thursday delivered a speech assuring the Lebanese that "the clock will not turn back, and we are going towards a solution and not towards a crisis," stressing that "in cooperation with the Prime Minister and the Speaker of Parliament, we will not tolerate and will not surrender to any attempt that could be aimed at sedition, rejected by all Lebanese.
President Aoun's words came during the speech he addressed to the Lebanese this evening, through the various media, following the security events that took place in the Tayouneh area from before noon until early afternoon.
And while the President of the Republic considered that "what we witnessed today is painful and unacceptable, regardless of the causes and causes," he affirmed, "It is not acceptable for arms to return as a language of communication between the Lebanese parties, because we all agreed to turn this dark page from our history," noting that The rule of law and institutions that everyone has agreed to, and which guarantees freedoms, especially freedom of expression, “must be the only one, through its institutions, the only valid reference for dealing with any problem, dispute or objection.”
It is the only valid and sole reference for dealing with any problem, dispute or objection.—Presidency Press Office
