Jumblatt sends letter to Ukrainian Ambassador, showing solidarity

Walid Jumblatt, the leader of the Progressive Socialist Party, voiced sympathy with the Ukrainian people in their resistance to the Russian invasion.

Jumblatt stated in a letter to Ukraine’s ambassador to Lebanon, Igor Ostash, that “On behalf of the Progressive Socialist Party, I express my sympathy with the Ukrainian people who are confronting this illegitimate war and its devastating humanitarian effects.”

In his letter, he emphasized that only a diplomatic solution based on international law and past accords, such as the Minsk Agreement, could end the violence.

Jumblatt received a reply letter from the Ukrainian ambassador, who expressed “great respect for Jumblatt’s personality and his contribution to the history of Lebanon.” The Ukrainian ambassador addressed Jumblatt, saying: “Your personal experience is invaluable to us. It was an honor and pleasure to receive a letter of support from you. I am touched, and I want to thank you for your appeal to Lebanese students to express their solidarity with Ukraine. Glory to Ukraine, glory to Lebanon.”
