The Maronite bishops synod backed on Saturday the Baabda Declaration made following the national dialogue held last week, saying it guarantees security stability in Lebanon. Following a six-day synod held under Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi in Bkirki, the bishops said in a statement they have high hopes on the all-party talks held under President Michel Suleiman. They backed the declaration issued following the national dialogue session, saying it is a foundation for the end of the political, economic and social crisis in the country, and leads to security.
