Hariri backs Aoun to protect Lebanon


--Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri Thursday ended a decade-old rivalry and endorsed MP Michel Aoun for the presidency, hoping his move would protect Lebanon and resolve a two-and-half-year-old crisis.


"I announce today in front of you my decision to support the candidacy of Gen. Michel Aoun for the presidency," Hariri said during a televised speech from his home in Beirut. "This decision stems from the need to protect Lebanon, protect the system, protect the state and protect the people ... the decision is based on our agreement to preserve together the system, strengthen the state, re-launch the economy and remain neutral concerning the Syrian crisis."
