LEBANON: POLITICAL AGREEMENT, KASSARJI (BISHOP OF BEIRUT), "A GREAT CHANCE FOR THE COUNTRY"

"It is a chance for the Lebanese political world to work for the good of its people, trying not to suffer any pressure and external interference. We want to be helped by all countries, we are a small country and we need all the international community. Lebanon can and must walk on its own". The Chaldeian Bishop of Beirut, mgr. Michel Kassarji, greets with satisfaction the agreement reached in Doha by the Lebanese political leaders to put an end to the crisis in Lebanon. As reported by the prime minister of Qatar, Hamed bin Jassim al Thani, "within 24 hours" the commander of the Lebanese army, Michel Suleiman, will be appointed president of the Republic. "A piece of news that the Lebanese people was eagerly waiting for. Lebanon has experienced a crisis that could not be resolved without the agreement of all the parties involved. Unfortunately, lots of violence might have been spared", says to SIR the prelate, according to whom "the president’s appointment is a great step forward in the resolution of the crisis", even if "many other problems remain unsolved, for instance control by the Hezbollah militia". "Now the important thing is to work for the good of Lebanon, this must be the local politicians’ commitment and pride".
