Rahi receives Syriac Catholic Patriarch, Iraqi Babylonian Movement delegation

Maronite Patriarch Bechara Rahi welcomed on Monday at his Bkerki residence, Syriac Catholic Patriarch of Antioch Ignatius Youssef III Younan, who offered Rahi well-wishes marking the holidays.

The Maronite Patriarch then received a delegation representing the Political Bureau and leadership of the Iraqi Babylon movement headed by Secretary-General, Rayan Al-Kildani.

“This is a very important first visit to unite Christian ranks, especially in Lebanon; it is the first visit of Iraqi Christian parties to Lebanon,” Al-Kildani said.

“God willing, we will pay similar visits to Syria and Oman in an attempt to bring Christian views closer, and we will request the opening of a coordination office between Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, and other countries,” he added.

“We appreciate the presence of clergymen like Patriarch Rahi, who deeply understands the Christian situation,” Al-Kildani concluded.
