Lebanese foreign minister resigns amid economic crisis

The Lebanese foreign minister on Monday submitted his resignation to the prime minister, according to a government source.

The source, who works at the government headquarters in Beirut, said that Nassif Hitti submitted his resignation to Hassan Diab this morning.

"Lebanon today is sliding into turning into a failed state," Hitti said in a statement. "I participated in the government with a perspective of working for a single employer named Lebanon, and I found in my country [many] employers and contradictory interests."
