Bassil: Permanent solution for Lebanon is resorting to coexistence formula

November 15, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) “The sole permanent solution for Lebanon is to resort to the formula of mutual living and coexistence,” said Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Minister, Gebran Bassil, on Sunday.

Speaking from the town of “Keb Elias” as part of his tour in the region of Zahle, Bassil considered that “Lebanon is built on parity, which gives it its value and importance.”

“This is our challenge today, not only at the level of Keb Elias or the Beqaa, but at the level of Lebanon as a whole,” said Bassil, stressing that “through our parity and our will to coexist together, we are able to succeed.”

“Lebanon is a symbolic role model in the joint living of both its Christians and Muslims together, and is a spring of counter-intellect in the face of Daesh,” he added.

“Through our strength and the power of our people, we shall unite for the success of the political forces in the country, and for all that is best for Lebanon,” concluded Bassil.
