Speaking to reporters, Hariri said that “we must be honest with the people; the country reached this staged because the state failed to implement the reforms.”

 

“During Paris II conference, Lebanon received $10 billion, an amount that would have been enough to rescue the situation,” he explained, adding that the Lebanese banks and the central bank are not the whole problem.
