Zayed from Dar Fatwa: Lebanese will pay price if Lebanon yields to regional pressure

November 05, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) The Egyptian Ambassador said that his country saw the necessity to keep Lebanon disassociated from regional developments, explaining that “if Lebanon keeps yielding to regional pressure, the Lebanese citizens will pay the price in this regard.”

Zayed’s stance came Thursday as he and the Emirati Ambassador Hamad Saeed Al Shamsi visited Mufti of the Lebanese Republic Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian at Dar Al Fatwa.

Upon answering a question made by journalists, Zayed said, “It’s well sure that electing a president will reduce the growing tension in the country and will ameliorate the situation by solving many pending problems.”
