Bkirki Sources Deny Making Preparations for Nasrallah-Rahi Meeting
Bkirki sources have denied that the seat of the Maronite church was preparing for a meeting between Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi and Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.
The sources told pan-Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat that “we don’t have (any information) about such a thing and we don’t know if any meeting is being prepared for unless the other side is making preparations.”
The denial came after MTV said Tuesday that Hizbullah was preparing for a meeting between its secretary general and al-Rahi.
It said that the visit would be aimed at praising the patriarch for his recent stances.
Asharq al-Awsat’s sources stressed that they won’t be surprised if such a meeting takes place. “We don’t think that it is impossible” to hold such talks, they added.
