French envoy slams Lebanon PM for shifting blame
The French ambassador has rebuked Lebanon’s prime minister for saying the country is under siege and blamed years of “mismanagement and inaction” by Lebanese leaders for its economic collapse.
French Ambassador to Lebanon Anne Grillo was speaking on Tuesday in response to a speech by caretaker Prime Minister Hassan Diab, who told envoys that a siege had been imposed on the country and warned of imminent social unrest.
“It is not the result of an external siege. It is the result of your own responsibilities, all of you, for years, of the political class. This is the reality.”, says French Ambassador.
