NNA - European Union Ambassador to Lebanon, Ralph Tarraf tweeted, on Tuesday said the following via his Twitter account:
“Today, we, the Ambassadors of the EU and its Members States resident in Beirut, along with the Ambassadors of Switzerland and Norway, met with President Aoun to express our grave and growing concern about the current situation in Lebanon.
We urged the President to do his utmost to support and actively contribute to the implementation of the crucial economic, monetary and fiscal reforms that Lebanon has committed to.
Though Lebanon’s context is challenging, immediate measures as detailed in the Staff Level Agreement the LB Government signed with the IMF on 07 April need to be implemented. The time to act is now.
The European Union and its Member States remain ready to support Lebanon in this critical period, politically and financially, in the context of implementing a sound economic recovery plan and an IMF program.”
