NNA - "Seven months ago, the government refused to pay $ 1.2 billion in foreign debts under the pretext of preserving the Lebanese people's money...It is now clear that this step was to buy time, float power and continue to numb the people through subsidies at their own expense and avoiding reforms. So what now? Use of reserves or gold? Where are the reforms?" questioned former Deputy Prime Minister, Ghassan Hasbani, via his Twitter account today.
