EU Parliament Threatens Sanctions on Lebanon Amid Economic Crisis

EU’s parliament is threatening potential sanctions on Lebanon as the country is mired in an economic crisis.

Lebanon formed a new government last week after over a year of being under an interim government since August 2020, when Lebanese officials stepped down over the Beirut port blast.

The EU’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borrel, said because Lebanon formed a new government, the time for sanctions had passed. But on Thursday, the EU’s parliament passed a resolution that said sanctions were still on the table.

“The introduction of targeted sanctions for obstructing or undermining the democratic political process remains an option,” the resolution said. The parliament called on Lebanon’s leaders “to keep their promises and be a functional government.”
