POLICY Statement

October 30, 2019: ATFL Statement on Lebanon

October 30, 2019

Washington, DC, October 30, 2019 (ATFL) – Given the urgent need to form a new government responsive to the aspirations of the people of Lebanon, ATFL calls on the political, civil society, and business leaders to work together in the formation of a new government committed to meet the needs of its citizens. Such an effort must efficiently and effectively carry out reform policies to reduce corruption, protect the country's sovereignty through support for the Lebanese Armed Forces and immediately begin to transparently implement fiscal, economic, political, and social reforms based on a national dialogue representing all interests of the country.

Most importantly, we call on the government, and especially the Armed Forces and security services, to protect the rights of the citizens and ensure they can express themselves without fear of reprisal.
