Rahi: I wish the President success in his visit to Russia to secure Syrian refugees’ return

Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Beshara Boutros Rahi, on Sunday hoped that the President would succeed in his upcoming official visit to Russia to find a solution for the repatriation of the displaced Syrians.

"We accompany President of the Republic [Michel Aoun] with our prayers on his official visit to Russia, in order to succeed in the issue of Syrian refugees return to their homeland, for the sake of both countries," Rahi said during Sunday's Mass service in Bkirki.

He added: "Lebanon is no longer able to shoulder the burden of Syrian refugees at the economic, social and daily living levels, nor to face emerging political, demographic and security threats."

Finally, Rahi said that a community cannot live in peace and happiness without repentance and reconciliation, in quest of progress, prosperity, and stability in life.
