The Daily Star (Lebanon) - - LEBANON -

In the ar­ti­cle “Im­pact of Syr­ian con­flict in fo­cus at AUB,” pub­lished Thurs­day, Sept. 3, 2017, a state­ment made dur­ing a panel dis­cus­sion at the Amer­i­can Univer­sity of Beirut con­fer­ence was mis­at­tributed to World Bank Econ­o­mist Harun On­der. He was quoted as say­ing that “We must first un­der­stand the na­ture of the re­con­struc­tion [of Syria], es­pe­cially in the con­text of tyranny.” This was in fact said by Nasser Yassin, the di­rec­tor of Re­search at AUB’s the Is­sam Fares In­sti­tute. The Daily Star re­grets this er­ror and would like to clar­ify the quote was in no way as­so­ci­ated to Mr. On­der and does not re­flect his view of Syr­ian re­con­struc­tion nor that of the World Bank.
