President Michel Aoun will voice “explosive” remarks in his televised address on Monday and will tackle all the obstacles that marred his tenure since 2016 until today, Baabda Palace sources told said.
He will cite the obstacles put in his way by both “allies and rivals” and will “call things by their name,” the sources told al-Anbaa newspaper in remarks published Sunday.
“He will not spare the Mar Mikhail Agreement from his attack, because he is determined to say things as they are,” the sources added.
“He will reject to be blamed alone for covering Hizbullah’s arms, because Hizbullah’s arms were present prior to his return from France, and the March 14 forces dealt with them as a fait accompli because they have regional links,” the sources said.
The sources added that “Aoun is dismayed by Hizbullah for obstructing the presidential tenure and its full alignment with his rival Speaker Nabih Berri, who was the only one who opposed his election as president.”
