New York: United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged Lebanese leaders on Sunday to work together to solve multiple crises plaguing the nation.
 
Fractured along sectarian lines, successive Governments have been unable to put the country on a sustainable path forward.
 
"I told the President I have come with one simple message: The United Nations stands in solidarity with the people of Lebanon. During my visit, I will meet a wide range of political, religious and civil society leaders, including women and youth. And my objective is to discuss how we can best support the Lebanese people to overcome the current economic and financial crisis and to promote peace, stability and sustainable development," the UN chief said after meeeting with the President of Lebanon Michel Aoun.
