Hariri: Lebanese have decided never to return to civil war

NNA – Prime Minister Saad Hariri said on Thursday evening, at the premiere of the play “Hona Beirut” at Al-Madina Theater in Hamra, that the decision of all Lebanese was final not to return to civil war, for any reason whatsoever.

“In my opinion, nothing better expresses the will to live and the love of life than a youth initiative that gives opportunities to young people,” he said.

“Today is not an ordinary day. Today is April 13, the commemoration of the outbreak of civil war 42 years ago. I said earlier that this is one of the things we must remember to forget,” Hariri said.

“Today, I tell you that you have done more than that: you took the commemoration of the most violent division that Lebanon has known throughout its history and transformed it into a celebration of national unity and coexistence,” he went on

“Words are not enough. That is why I am committed, in my political and governmental action, to fight against the phenomena which would ultimately lead any society to civil war,” Hariri concluded.
