Aoun sounds alarm on growing media rumors trend

President of the Republic, Michel Aoun, on Wednesday followed up closely on the most recent political developments leading to the formation of a new government, especially in light of the contacts that have taken place to alleviate obstacles hindering the birth of the government.

Aoun received a letter from the Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, who praised the fraternal relations between his country and Lebanon.

The Emir of Kuwait confirmed to the president his participation in the work sessions of the Arab socio-economic summit, to be held in Beirut in January 2019.

On another level, the President of the Republic met with MPs Mario Aoun, and Roger Azar, with whom he discussed the political situation.

Separately, Aoun welcomed a delegation from NDU University, headed by father Pierre Najem.

Najem thanked the President for having visited the university marking its foundation anniversary. During this event, NDU bestowed upon President Aoun an honorary doctorate.

In his delivered word, the president criticized the use of rumors in the media and society to convey a certain political position. "Rumors are destructive for society, not to mention undermine trust between people and those in charge," Aoun maintained.

"It is intolerable to focus on bad information, as this batters the pace of the economic cycle, and subsequently leads to crises," Aoun warned.
