Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi demanded on Tuesday the formation of a neutral cabinet to bridge the gap between the March 8 and 14 alliances and achieve reconciliation.“The March 8 and 14 coalitions sit on one table to save the country,” al-Rahi told reporters at Beirut Rafik Hariri International Airport before heading to the Vatican.

He pointed out that a national unity government should be formed after the two sides reach reconciliation and amend the ties.The Patriarch called on the Lebanese to act responsibly, stressing that there’s no need to hold a spiritual summit currently as there are no disputes between Muslim and Christian spiritual leaders.

“The most important matter is to achieve reconciliation between the March 8 and 14 camps in order to maintain Lebanon’s highest interest,” al-Rahi said.
