Out “of this matter in an attempt to rescue the two companies the government intervened in 1977 and after the war ended, and has set up a joint venture called” Tele Liban “, was absorbing the two companies a share of fifty percent of the shares to the private sector, while the state completed the proportion of the fifty other.
