NNA - The Christian Islamic Summit stressed that Lebanon is in dire need for a president having wisdom and visionary and capable of guiding Lebanese to a consensus prone to surpass all challenges and dificulties, explaining that "any delay in electing the sole Christian president in the Arab World will disrupt Lebanon's noble national and Arab mission."

Senior Christian and Muslim religious figures convened on Thursday at Dar el-Fatwa in Beirut by holding the first spiritual summit after electing Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian as mufti of the republic, with the Secretary General of the Islamic Christian National Dialogue Committee, Mohammad As-Sammak, reading the outcome of the summit.

The attendees called for casting Lebanon away from foreign conflicts and the policies of regional and international axes.

They called upon the Arab and international communities to assume their responsibilities in light of the displaced Syrians file as Lebanon could not apprehend a heavy popular load of refugees.
