Lebanon has a greater economic risk than Israeli military threats: the speaker is Xinhua


BEIRUT, November 11 (Xinhua) – Libyan Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri said on Sunday that the risk facing Lebanon is now economic, not military, because Israel does not dare to attack Lebanon, reports the National News Agency (NNA).

"Hezbollah, in addition to our national unity, will not allow Israel to launch any aggression against Lebanon," NRI quoted Berry.

If the situation remains unchanged, we will join the dangerous area, indicating a delay in building a government.

In many cases, the Lebanese spokesman has urged all political parties to reach a compromise in seeking to reach a consensus on the formation of a government in a state of economic collapse.

According to Byblos Bank's weekly economic publication, Lebanon's government debt at the end of June amounted to 82.95 billion dollars, reaching 76.5 billion dollars a year ago.

Lebanon needs to make major reforms to curb public debt, including the transformation of the electricity sector, which pays more than $ 2 billion a year.
