President Michel Suleiman has stressed that Lebanon will not be a “mailbox” anymore or “a place to protect any regime or state.” “Lebanon paid dearly for its freedom and democracy and from now on it will not allow anyone to turn it into a launchpad for sending messages to anyone or into a place to protect any regime or state other than Lebanon’s,” Suleiman reassured during a meeting with the Lebanese community in Uruguay. The president called on Lebanese expats not to fear for Lebanon, “as the transformations in the Arab region are in its interest, because it was not able to practice its democracy properly amid the presence of regimes that don’t allow power rotation.” [Link]
