Head of Free Patriotic Movement MP Gibran Bassil met on Sunday with the Maronite Patriarch Cardinal Bechara Boutros Rahi in Diman.

Following the meeting, Bassil said that FPM supported Lebanon's neutrality, noting that he applied this approach at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

“Neutralism is a decision we have taken and should be implemented with the aim of taking a strategic position, in order to reach a local consensus, otherwise we will face internal problems.” he reiterated.

Bassil also called for “securing an international umbrella that includes countries that respect and implement neutrality, and neighboring countries must recognize this principle.”

He added that he supports the neutrality that preserves Lebanon and its unity and protects its strength in facing Israeli ambitions and eliminating the weighty burden of the Syrian displacement.

Bassil concluded by saying that Lebanon is basically a point of convergence and a bridge linking both East and West together, and characterized by its system of openness of cultural and integration, as well as a role model of coexistence between religions and cultures, which ensures the stability of the country.
