Caretaker PM Diab says lifting subsidies would cause "social explosion"
Lebanon News
Caretaker Prime Minister Hassan Diab said on Friday any step to lift subsidies now on key goods would be unacceptable and would cause a "social explosion".

In a televised address Diab, who resigned two months ago after a huge explosion damaged much of Beirut and worsened the country's economic crisis, said $4 billion had been spent so far in 2020 on subsidizing food, medicine, flour and wheat imports.
