Sleiman: Terrorist threats will not affect Lebanese

BEIRUT: Former President Michel Sleiman stressed Thursday that terrorist threats would not be able to bear fruit in Lebanon regardless of whether presidential and parliamentary elections fail to take place. 

“The interactions that have prevented the implementation of these elections will not constitute as a loophole which the terrorists will use to carry out their threats and sabotage the civil peace,” Sleiman said after meeting with Deputy Parliament Speaker Farid Makari at his temporary home in Paris. 

The former president stressed that the Lebanese will always stand united to prevent the implementation of these threats. 

“Lebanon will be a graveyard to those who assault its citizens and their holy places, no matter the sect or political party they belong to,” he said. Parliamentary elections are set to take place in November.
