Lebanon's ambassador to Argentina demanded that a prominent Argentine journalist apologize for insulting Lebanon during his show, the online-based Jabalna Magazine reported.On June 1, Jorge Lanata ridiculed the poor living conditions in his country, comparing them to Lebanon, on his weekly "Lanata Sin Filtro" (Lanata uncensored) radio show. Lanata's trash talk prompted Argentinian Ambassador Antionio Andary to write a letter to the host demanding an apology for Lebanon and the Lebanese community in the South American country."We, the Lebanese, can safely say that we preserved our democracy even in the years of Civil War, which was a product of foreign elements that turned Lebanon into a war arena".The envoy also said the Lebanese prided themselves on their freedom of religion and speech and that the country had always exerted efforts to maintain peace in a region of continuous conflict.
