Arslan: Army is the only bet left to preserve Lebanon

August 01, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) “Lebanese Democratic” party leader, Talal Arslan, on Saturday called upon all the Lebanese to support the Lebanese Institution and provide it with political support and full trust, saying that the Army is the only bet left to preserve Lebanon

“The Lebanese Army is the only bet left to preserve Lebanon and is the line that separates between the state and confessional federations, a project which just the unity of the state and its institutions on top of them the Army institution can topple,” Arslan said.

Arslan hoped the Lebanese Army would succeed in its battle against terrorism and would benefit from the capabilities of the resistance which support it in its battle to preserve stability and security on the borders.

He considered the tripartite formula of Army, people and resistance an optimal one to confirm national position comprehensiveness and rigidity as for defending Lebanon against all attempts that target its unity and civil peace.
