Germany's Siemens has openly offered to help fix Lebanon's long-crippled electricity sector, shortly after reports of an offer made in June resurfaced.The tweet came a day after Kaeser confirmed that the company had in fact offered to help address Lebanon's electricity crisis during German Chancellor Angela Merkel's visit to Lebanon in June.The issue of the Siemens offer came to the fore when a recording of Nabatieh MP Yassine Jaber blasting Abi Khalil was leaked and widely circulated by local media Sunday.Abi Khalil later denied Siemens had made a bid, in a tweet directed at Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Joumblatt.Regarding the leaked voice note, Jaber said he was only shedding light on an issue that is important to the country, as every person from every party and area suffers from the electricity crisis.
