President of the Republic, Michel Aoun, stressed Lebanon's readiness to host any international or regional sports tournaments, saying that "the Asian basketball championship- which started last week and ends at the beginning of next week- reflects the international confidence in Lebanon and its presence in regional and international forums, thanks to the stability it enjoys.

President Aoun's fresh words came during his meeting on Friday morning at the Baabda palace with a delegation of the International Basketball Federation, led by Horacio Moratori, accompanied by a delegation of the Federation.

The President shed light on the Lebanese people's attachment to popular sports, including basketball and others, in view of the principles of sportsmanship embodied by sports and the need to disseminate it in the hearts of young people to replace the destructive ideas and practices that some try to bed in them.

Aoun highlighted the paramount importance of bolstering ties between Lebanon and International Basketball Federation "FIBA" and the activation of the Lebanese presence at the various levels.
