Bkirki dissatisfied with French policy towards Lebanon
The Maronite church’s dismay over the French policy towards Lebanon was clearly reflected in the sermon of Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi on Sunday, when he criticized the questions addressed by French envoy Jean-Yves Le Drian to Lebanon’s MPs.
In remarks to ad-Diyar newspaper, Bkirki sources confirmed the dismay.
“France has always stood by Lebanon and its role was effective, but today the situation is different and its proposals are not acceptable to some Lebanese parties,” the sources added.
“We want to keep the relation good and firm with the French, but we hope they will help resolve the presidential crisis in a consensual way,” the sources went on to say.
