Saniora Declares Lebanon’s Solidarity with Iraq Christians

01.jpgPremier Fouad Saniora on Sunday telephoned Iraqi President Jalal Talabani to declare solidarity with Iraq’s Christians and urge their speedy return to their homes in the town of Mosul. 

“The Lebanese people back all efforts exerted by the Iraqi government to safeguard the social fabric of the state of Iraq,” Saniora reportedly told Talabani.
“Christians in Iraq, as in any other Arab state, are an integral component of the national fabric,” Saniora stressed.

He said the “pluralist nature of our societies is based on values and ethics from both Christianity and Islam.”
