BASSIL FROM ZAHLE: WE ASPIRE TO ACHIEVE A CIVIL STATE

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Gibran Bassil, on Sunday kicked off a tour to Zahle by visiting the Syriac Orthodox Archdiocese, where he was welcomed by Minister of Justice Salim Jeraisati.

Minister Bassil said that there should be no distinction between the Lebanese, adding that he aspires "to achieve a civil state, which does not discriminate between its sons."

Bassil added that his visit to the Syriac diocese came within the context of his interest in the Syriac community.

"We, in this country are all minorities, there is no a mother sect or a dominant sect," Bassil went on.

Bassil concluded by saying that Christianity stems from this East, we are the basis of this homeland and there should be no discrimination [between its sons]."
