Finance Minister Ali Hassan Khalil called Monday for refraining from distorting the achieved victory over terrorism through words that draw a wedge between various sides in the country.
Speaking at the 39th commemoration of Imam Moussa al-Sadr’s absence in a ceremony organized in the German city of Dortmund, Khalil recalled the Imam’s important role in spreading the culture of unity, dialogue and openness.
“Victory was achieved due to the sacrifices of the Army, Resistance and all martyrs who lost their lives while defending Lebanon; hence, it is a victory for all of Lebanon,” he asserted.
Over the Syrian refugees’ issue, Khalil deemed that coordination ought to take place with Syria for the sake of solving all matters at stake, to the mutual benefit of both the Lebanese and Syrian people.
In this context, Khalil commended Germany for its valuable contribution and support to Lebanon regarding the refugees’ dossier, adding, “Germany has been one of the leading countries in extending financial assistance to Lebanon to help it confront this challenge.”
