NNA - President of the Republic, Michel Aoun, on Monday stressed that Lebanon will emerge from its current difficult economic situation, indicating that the adopted measures at the economic and monetary levels aim at revitalizing the national economy and production sectors.

President Aoun affirmed that Lebanon is capable of coping with the pressures it faces, from within and from outside- especially that "national unity is safeguarded and political differences do not affect the general national position," as he said.

The Head of State also noted that his undertaken contacts in the last 48 hours have resulted in positive outcomes with regard to the popular movements of currency exchange agents and gas station owners.

"I will continue these efforts to resolve the remaining standing matters," Aoun maintained.

Aoun was speaking during his meeting with the Antiochean Orthodox Archbishop of New York and all North America, Joseph Al-Zehlaoui, accompanied by Vice President Fawaz El Khoury and Financial Officer Salim Abboud.

The meeting took place in the presence of former Minister Yaacoub Al Sarraf.

Aoun also met at Baabda palace with MP Michel Mouawad over the current general situation and latest developments on the local scene.

On the other hand, Aoun met with the "Popular Bloc" President Miriam Skaff, who handed him an invitation to attend the memorial mass marking the fourth anniversary of the passing away of former MP and former minister Elie Skaff at Our Lady of Zahle and the Bekaa.

The visit was a chance to dwell on the general situation in the country and most recent developments at the political and economic levels.
