President of the Republic, General Michel Aoun, asserted that the stances of Imam Sayed Musa Al-Sadr remain a source of inspiration to work for the salvation of Lebanon and its people, especially since he is still present among us in his thought and belief in Lebanon, the homeland of coexistence.
The President’s positions came in a tweet on his personal account on the occasion of the forty-fourth memorial of the disappearance of Imam al-Sadr and his two companions.
“On the 44th memorial of the disappearance of Imam Musa Al-Sadr, he is still present among us with his thought and belief in Lebanon, the homeland of coexistence, and his quest for the unity of the Lebanese family.
While the Lebanese lack this national and spiritual stature in these difficult circumstances, his stances remain a source of inspiration to work for the salvation of Lebanon and its people”.
