Future parliamentary bloc on Tuesday categorically emphasized the substantial need to brace and shield the Lebanese army in the face of terrorism and terrorists.
Future Bloc's fresh words on Tuesday came in a statement in the wake of its periodic meeting at the Central House, chaired by bloc head, Fouad Siniora, to address the overall situation in the country.
The bloc underlined the need to fully support the Lebanese army and its institution in the face of the enemies of Lebanon and terrorists, as well as to counter all attempts to drag the army into the internal Lebanese political debate.
"The bloc holds on to the Lebanese army as the sole and exclusive tool in the hand of the Lebanese state alongside the other official security forces to protect the country from terrorism and external and internal dangers that may threaten national unity and civil peace," the bloc said.
Future expresses utter confidence that the Lebanese army, which is keen on its uniting role for all the Lebanese, respects and enforces laws in effect and adheres to the Charter of Human Rights, whether for Lebanese citizens or Syrian refugees.
The bloc lauded the army's observance of the right mechanisms for transparent and truthful accountability, abstaining from being influenced by populist politics or by narrow political or partisan calculations.
On the other hand, the bloc urged the government to exclusively coordinate with the United Nations in the issue of the return of Syrian refugees to their homeland, to secure their sound return under international guarantees to safe areas in Syria.
