Bassil from Johannesburg: Lebanon is Muslim and Christian altogether

Foreign Affairs Minister, Gibran Bassil, confirmed that Lebanon “is a mixture of Christians and Muslims altogether and any deletion to any of them would be a deletion to all of Lebanon, the residents and emigrants.”

Minister Bassil’s words came Thursday as he participated in a reception ceremony held in honor of the Charge d’Affaires of the Lebanese Embassy in South Africa.

Bassil explained that Lebanon would be defeated by displacement and terror if it lacked its mental and cultural identity.

He addressed the Lebanese Diaspora to be in permanent contact with his homeland, reiterating the struggle for gaini back the Lebanese identity to each emigrant.
