Makhzoumi visits Derian, calls to facilitate Hariri’s mission

Grand Mufti of the Republic, Sheikh Abdellatif Derian, received at Dar al-Fatwa Head of the National Dialogue Party, MP Fouad Makhzoumi, with talks touching on the country's general affairs.

"The visit is to congratulate His Eminence on his election as a member of the Supreme Council of the Muslim World League," Makhzoumi said after the meeting, pointing out that "Mufti Derian is a symbol of moderation and that this new mandate will be in favor of Lebanon and the Arab and Islamic worlds."

"We discussed with His Eminence the situation of the country, and I reiterate from the need to complete the formation of the government and facilitate the task of PM-designate Saad Hariri," said Makhzoumi, adding that "if we fail to form a government, the economic situation will not be reassuring."

Makhzoumi also assured that "Saudi Arabia has always supported Lebanon and its stability in the most difficult circumstances. We stand by all those who helped Lebanon and support it. We certainly stand by the Kingdom in different circumstances."
