Lebanon always capable of overcoming crisis: president

Aoun also said that young Lebanese expatriates should not worry about returning to Lebanon, citing his optimism about the country's future.

Lebanese President Michel Aoun said Tuesday that Lebanon is always capable of overcoming its crisis.

“History has shown that Lebanon is always capable of breaking out of its different crises,” Aoun said during his meeting with a number of young Lebanese expatriates from different parts of the world.

Aoun said that Lebanon is going through “a very tough period,” but it is not the only country suffering from economic and political complications.

“Lebanon enjoys security, stability at least, while a lot of other countries still suffer from terrorism,” he said.

Aoun also said that young Lebanese expatriates should not worry about returning to Lebanon, citing his optimism about the country’s future.
