The Lebanese official revealed that the initiative would include Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, and Syria, stressing that its purpose is to put forward an economic framework compatible with the wider Arab market.

Constantine explained that this initiative would open horizons and opportunities for the Lebanese people, while preserving each country's sovereignty and independence, maintaining mutual respect.
