Aoun: Lebanon ready to grant citizenship for Lebanese descendants

President Michel Aoun on Monday maintained that Lebanon is ready to grant citizenship for the Lebanese descendants wishing to recuperate it.

“Lebanon needs the support of its sons abroad to be able to withstand challenges at different levels,” he said.

“[Lebanon] is adamant about moving forward in preserving security and stability,” he added.

Aoun made these remarks during his meeting at Baabda palace with a delegation of the National Federation of Syrian Lebanese American Clubs.

Separately, Aoun received Ministers Akram Shehayeb (Education) and Wael Abu Faour (Industry), who conveyed a message from Progressive Socialist Party leader, Walid Jumblatt, on the current political developments.

The President later met with French Ambassador to Lebanon, Bruno Foucher, over the bilateral relations and cooperation.
