Rahi: To lower ceiling of demands to facilitate birth of government
Maronite Archbishop of Beirut and President of the Episcopal Media Committee, Archbishop Boulos Matar, held the annual dinner in support of the activities of the Catholic Information Center, under the patronage of Maronite Patriarch, Mar Bechara Boutros Rahi and the presence of caretaker Minister of Information, Melhem Riachy.
Speaking during the event, Patriarch Rahi called on all political counterparts for more "concessions" to facilitate the birth of the long-awaited cabinet, stressing the importance of resolving urgent issues and addressing the deteriorating economic situation.
Rahi regretted "the dropping political discourse between politicians," calling on the media outlets to play a primary role in lowering the political debate.
In turn, Minister Riachy said that the Christian-Christian reconciliation was achieved to stay and continue, in spite of the distortions, abuses and changes that occurred to it.
"We believe that this reconciliation protects both the free Christian and free Lebanese presence in Lebanon and in this East," he stressed.
Finally, Riachy pointed out that he would be handing over to his successor the projects left behind in the corridors of the Secretariat Council of Ministers.
