RNA – In a meeting with Mohammad Fahmi, Lebanon’s Minister of Interior and Municipalities, Hujjat al-Islam Ali al-Khatib, the deputy speaker of the Lebanese Shi’ah Islamic Assembly, stressed that political stability is a national need and an urgent need and added, “Achieving stability brings security, and therefore politicians are obliged to cooperate with the government in their efforts to resolve the accumulated crises, which have exhausted the citizens and not hinder the reform process and the achievement of security and social and economic stability.”
He said, “Some blame the Islamic Resistance [Hezbollah] for the leading economic crises, while the Islamic Resistance has made the greatest sacrifices in defeating the Zionist and Takfiri terrorists and maintaining the security of Lebanon and has removed the risk of harm and danger for its people.”
Hujjat al-Islam al-Khatib stressed, “The Zionist regime is the source of turmoil and insecurity in the region and the ignitor of seditions and is responsible for crises in Lebanon, Syria and Palestine.”
Lebanon is facing its worst economic crisis in decades. The Lebanese pound has continued to plummet against the US dollar, losing more than 80 percent of its value over the last weeks while sources of foreign currency have dried up.
The economic situation is fueling inflation, which the Finance Ministry has estimated will reach 27 percent later this year.
