Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Bechara Boutros al-Rahi, met today in Bkirki with "National Liberal Party" Chief, Camille Chamoun, accompanied by his father, former Party Head & former MP Dori Chamoun, who came on a supportive visit to the Patriarch's positions.
On emerging, Chamoun affirmed his Party’s absolute support for the initiative of His Beatitude regarding the neutrality of Lebanon and the international conference aimed at saving Lebanon. He added: “We pledge with the rest of the sovereign parties to be on Bkirki’s side, and we call on all parties who believe in sovereignty, and the revolution groups, to stand by the Patriarch, and we will continue working to support these initiatives through expanded meetings with the largest number of supporters."
In turn, former MP Dory Chamoun considered that his visit to the Patriarch is a "farewell visit" after he passed over the Party’s leadership to his son, vowing to remain present "to support the Lebanese youth who believe in the cause of Lebanon's independence."
"We want safe borders, and we want the United Nations to remember that there is a republic called the Lebanese Republic that has been forgotten thanks to the actions of political officials. His Beatitude is familiar with the Lebanese dossier and is working hard to close ranks, and we support all his steps and initiatives," Chamoun underscored.
The Patriarch then received the Ambassador of Hungary, Géza Mihályi, with whom he discussed the prevailing conditions and latest developments on the local scene.
In the afternoon, al-Rahi met with a delegation representing the "Cedar Revolution National Council" who briefed him on the files the Council is working on to support the Patriarch's initiative with regards to Lebanon’s neutrality and international conference.
