Fmr. Lebanese Minister: Lebanon Is a Silly Adolescent Country That Still Needs Foreign Guardianship




Published on Nov 26, 2018

Former Lebanese minister Wiam Wahhab said during an interview with Russia Today TV that there was no such thing as independence in Lebanon, and that the French Mandate had achieved more than Lebanon has achieved as an independent state. Wahhab, who is the head of the Arab Tawhid Party, said that Lebanon is a silly adolescent country that needs foreign guardianship, and that even guardianship by Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, or the Comoro Islands would be better than the local administration. The interview aired on November 22, 2018, which was Lebanon's Independence Day.
