Kataeb Leader Praises Reconciliation, Says It Turns Painful Page in Lebanon's History

Kataeb leader Samy Gemayel on Wednesday praised the reconciliation between the Lebanese Forces party and the Marada Movement, commending the two party leaders for turning a painful page in the history of Lebanon and the Christians.

"I also congratulate Maronite Patriarch Bechara Al-Rahi and thank him for sponsoring this reconciliation," he said in a statement.

Gemayel stressed that the Kataeb party had constantly encouraged such reunions, voicing hope that the LF-Marada rapprochement would serve as a further step towards a broader national reconciliation that is based on real democracy, respect of each other's differences, pluralism and the freedom of political activism; all through the sole and exclusive authority of the Lebanese state.
