Al-Rahi: The entry of Iranian fuel tanks under Hezbollah’s authority is not allowed

Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Mar Bechara Boutros Rahi, visited the President of the Republic, General Michel Aoun at Baabda Palace on Friday.

Rahi congratulated the Lebanese on the new government because it opens the door of hope, as Lebanese were suffering from the absence of a government, and he discussed with President Aoun all living, economic, educational, and fuel issues.

Rahi said: “We hope that as long as there is a government and excellent people in it, there will be no fear that Lebanon moves forward and that life returns to the way it was, provided that politicians do not deal with the government, ministers, and justice, and that factions do not intervene with justice; we are a country that separates between religion and state.

He said that interventions hinder progress, and the media must talk about the positives that exist, as we are today in a state of disease, but we should care about being cured of it.

Rahi said that the ministerial statement bore the titles of its action plan, and we give full confidence to the responsible authority; what concerns us is that we work to serve the country and all the Lebanese.

He said that the entry of Iranian fuel tanks under the security authority of the Syrian army and Hezbollah is not allowed, and this is what I called a “derogation of Lebanon’s sovereignty”.
