Itani began the conference by announcing that the municipal council, following a written request from Prime Minister Saad Hariri, will name the road extending from President Emile Lahoud’s Avenue to the “statue of expatriate” as ‘President Michel Aoun’s Avenue”.
Earlier in 2018, an avenue holding the King Salman bin Abdul Aziz’s name was inaugurated in the presence of Prime Minister Saad Hariri, Lebanese Forces chief Samir Geagea, Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat as well as the Saudi royal envoy Nizar al-Aloula and Saudi charge d’affaires in Lebanon Walid al-Bukhari.
