# Does Chowla's conjecture on the Liouville function imply the Riemann hypothesis?

A paper see here on arXiv claims that Chowla's conjecture (applied to the Liouville function instead of the Mobius function), i.e., that $$\lim_{N\rightarrow \infty} \sum_{n\leq N} \lambda(n+a_1) \lambda(n+a_2) \cdots \lambda(n+a_k)=o(N),$$ implies the Riemann hypothesis. I have been unable to find any references to this claim after some research.

Is this claim new? Any pointers, references appreciated.
