AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): The Secretary General of Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement, Sayed Hassan Nasrallah, is scheduled to deliver a speech on Monday.
According to Al-Ahed News, Nasrallah’s speech, is expected to focus on the latest developments in Lebanon and the region.
The formation of Lebanon’s new government headed by Najib Mikati, shipments of Iranian fuel to the Arab country, and importing gas from Syria will be among the topics he will discuss in his address.
Lebanon has been mired since late 2019 in a deep economic and financial crisis, exacerbated by a political deadlock.
The economic and financial crisis is the gravest threat to the country’s stability since the 15-year civil war ended in 1990.
Lebanese officials have admitted that major economic restructuring would be necessary to make the country’s economy viable again, however, previous prime ministers have described them as “painful”.
Observers say the US and the Europeans primarily have their own interests at heart through their reform demands at the expense of Lebanon's unity which is a highly sensitive issue because of its sectarian make-up.
The crisis is mostly linked to the sanctions that the United States and its allies have imposed on Lebanon as well as foreign intervention in the Arab nation’s domestic affairs.
