Maronite Bishops urged on Wednesday Lebanese politicians to cooperate with President Michel Suleiman’s call for dialogue, saying the cabinet issue should be resolved within the constitutional framework. Following their monthly meeting under Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi and with the partial attendance of papal envoy Cardinal Robert Sarah, the bishops urged “all politicians to abide by the Baabda Declaration and mainly the article that calls for steering Lebanon clear of conflicts.” “The crisis in the country over mainly the cabinet issue cannot be solved outside the national constitutional principles,” the council of Maronite bishops said in its statement.
