BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri addressed the nation on Friday in an attempt to ease tensions after protests spread throughout the country.

“The country is going through an difficult situation at the moment. The Lebanese pain is real and I support every peaceful protest,” Hariri said during public address.

“I have been trying to address the reason’s behind the people’s pain for three years now,” he continued, saying that “what’s important now is how we address the situation and come up with a conclusion.”

Hariri said that his proposed solution would be to boost the country’s revenues by restoring the economy, creating new jobs, and ending government corruption.

The Lebanese Prime Minister said he is giving the Lebanese government 72 hours to come up with a solution to put an end to the issues plaguing the country.

“I give our partners in the country 72 hours to offer a clear answer about the solution or else I will make another announcement,” he added.

He gives the government 72 hours to come up with a solution. Isn’t he part of the government? He wasn’t such a tough guy when MBD had him prisoner in Riyadh
