President Michel Aoun received a message on Friday, from the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi in which Egypt affirmed its keenness on Lebanon’s stability and prosperity.
“We are ready to make every effort that can contribute to the prosperity of the brotherly Lebanese people and restore them to their health,” the letter wrote, according to the Lebanese Presidency’s tweet.
In the letter, Al-Sisi expressed that he trusts that “Lebanon, which is in the hearts of all Arabs, has the will to get out of the crisis and distance itself from the regional conflicts in order to avoid the negative impact they will have on it,” reported Al Joumhouria.
“We hope that the negotiations that Lebanon is conducting with financial institutions will result in success that reduces the damages to the Lebanese economy,” Al-Sisi also stated.
Egypt itself has had success receiving billions of dollars in support from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which Lebanon is now failing to do.
