The Lebanese presidency denies news about the contents of Aoun's letter to Macron is true

The Presidency of the Lebanese Republic denied the validity of news published by one of the Lebanese newspapers issued today, regarding the contents of the letter recently sent by Lebanese President Michel Aoun to his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron, stressing that what was published is incorrect and fabricated.

The Lebanese presidency indicated - in a statement today - that what the newspaper published was fabricated information about the content of President Michel Aoun's message to French President Macron, and it was presented in a way that suggests it is an excerpt from the text of the message.

She added: "What was published is incorrect and was never mentioned in the text of the presidential message. Rather, it is a figment of the imagination of the author of the article, who adopted the reference to points that have no basis in truth."

And one of the Lebanese daily newspapers reported in its issue issued today that Aoun sent a letter to Macron in an attempt to "ward off the danger of subjecting the leader of the Free Patriotic Movement, MP Gebran Bassil (the president's son-in-law), to French and European sanctions, for obstructing the formation of the new Lebanese government and corruption." The French administration has placed sanctions on the path of preparation and implementation.

The newspaper added that the Lebanese president’s message came as a "last desperate attempt to lure Paris into entrenching itself on the side of the presidency and the Free Patriotic Movement under the banner of the battle for the rights of Christians."
