Aoun: We will spare no effort to find solution to cabinet formation

President of the Republic, Michel Aoun, said that he would spare no effort to "solve the complexities that stand in the way of the formation of the new cabinet."

Aoun, whose words came during a meeting with the Melkite Greek Catholic Patriarch of Antioch and the East, Youssef Absi, added that "it takes the courage and patience to reach a happy end, but we will definitely find the solution because waiting is a waste of time."

On the other hand, President Aoun expressed fear of settling the Palestinians living in exile.

"Some are seeking to find unacceptable and unjust solutions by settling the Palestinians where they are," he said, pointing out if this happens, it will be the biggest massacre of justice in the world.

In the same context, the president called on all Melkite Greek Patriarchs to "contribute to finding a solution for the safe and voluntary return of Syrian refugees to their homeland, because linking their return to the political solution in their country is very dangerous."

For his part, Absi stressed that "the Greek Catholic community has played a key role in the political, cultural, social and security life in Lebanon and is a key factor in providing stability and prosperity in Lebanon.

Finally, Absi sounded the alarm on the serious repercussions of delaying the birth of the government, especially at the economic level.
