أكد مسؤول السياسة الخارجية في الاتحاد الأوروبي جوزيف بوريل، قبيل مغادرته بيروت، أنّ "جوهر الأزمة الحكومية في لبنان ينبع من تناحر الزعماء اللبنانيين على السلطة، وحضَّهم على تنحية خلافاتهم جانباً وتشكيل حكومة أو المخاطرة بانهيار مالي كامل والتعرض لعقوبات".
ولفت بوريل الى انه "وجه رسالة صريحة مفادها أن بعض الزعماء قد يواجهون عقوبات إذا استمروا في عرقلة الخطوات الرامية لتشكيل حكومة جديدة وتنفيذ إصلاحات تمس الحاجة إليها"، مبيناً ان "البلد يواجه مشكلات مالية كبيرة ومن أجل حل الأزمة الاقتصادية يحتاجون إلى حكومة... أي سفينة في خضم العاصفة بحاجة إلى قبطان وإلى طاقم حتى يعمل النظام والإ سيكون مصيرها الغرق، ومن الواضح أنه تشاحن من أجل توزيع السلطة، فلا أن أقول إنّ هناك أيضاً حالة كبيرة من انعدام الثقة".

I will pray and fast today so that sanctions will fall on all this demonic political caste.
Let's hope that most of them are aounists, from amal and HA.

Biden is too weak. Mike Pompeo would have had the entire Lebanese political establishment sanctioned by now.

Lebanon: EU adopts a framework for targeted sanctions​

Today the Council adopted a framework for targeted restrictive measures to address the situation in Lebanon. This framework provides for the possibility of imposing sanctions against persons and entities who are responsible for undermining democracy or the rule of law in Lebanon through any of the following actions:
  • obstructing or undermining the democratic political process by persistently hampering the formation of a government or by obstructing or seriously undermining the holding of elections;
  • obstructing or undermining the implementation of plans approved by Lebanese authorities and supported by relevant international actors, including the EU, to improve accountability and good governance in the public sector or the implementation of critical economic reforms, including in the banking and financial sectors and including the adoption of transparent and non-discriminatory legislation on the export of capital;
  • serious financial misconduct, concerning public funds, insofar as the acts concerned are covered by the United Nations Convention Against Corruption, and the unauthorised export of capital.
Sanctions consist of a travel ban to the EU and an asset freeze for persons, and an asset freeze for entities. In addition, EU persons and entities are forbidden from making funds available to those listed.

Background​

On 7 December 2020, the Council adopted conclusions in which it noted with increasing concern that the grave financial, economic, social and political crisis that has taken root in Lebanon had continued to worsen over the previous months and that the Lebanese population was the first to suffer from the increasing difficulties in the country. It underlined the urgent need for the Lebanese authorities to implement reforms in order to rebuild the confidence of the international community. The Council also called on all Lebanese stakeholders and political forces to support the urgent formation of a mission-driven, credible and accountable government in Lebanon, able to implement the necessary reforms.
Since then, the Council has repeatedly expressed grave concern about the deteriorating situation in Lebanon. Despite repeated calls on Lebanese political forces and stakeholders to act in the national interest and to no longer delay the formation of a fully empowered government capable of meeting the country’s urgent needs and implementing critical reforms, there is no progress. Meanwhile, the economic, social and humanitarian situation in Lebanon continues to deteriorate and the people continue to suffer.
The Union is ready to use all its policy instruments to contribute to a sustainable way out of the current crisis and to react to a further deterioration of democracy and the rule of law, and of the economic, social and humanitarian situation in Lebanon. At the Foreign Affairs Council of 12 July 2021, the high representative announced a political understanding that a sanctions regime would be established against those responsible for the situation.
The EU remains committed to helping Lebanon and its people to overcome the present challenges and is ready to use the different instruments at its disposal to do so. It is, however, of the utmost importance that the Lebanese leadership put aside their differences and work together to form a government and enact the measures required to steer the country towards a sustainable recovery. The stability and prosperity of Lebanon are of crucial importance for the whole region and for Europe.

Considering the imbassil's horrible media blitz recently I wouldn't be surprised if these sanctions hit him again w 3amo Micho. All western and European media are blaming most of our top politicians ESPECIALLY imbassil for our lack of functioning government.
