HARIRI RECEIVES SWISS AMBASSADOR, FORMER BOSNIAN PM

The President of the Council of Ministers Saad Hariri received today at the Grand Serail the former Prime Minister of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Zlatko Lagumdzija, and discussed with him the situation and the bilateral relations.

Hariri later received Swiss Ambassador to Lebanon, Francois Barras, who came on a farewell visit.

He also met with a delegation of "Christian minorities" headed by Habib Ephrem and discussed with them the demands of the minorities.

After the meeting, Ephrem said: "In light of the daily massacres against the Christians of the East, the last of which was the barbaric attack on Al-Minya children in Egypt, and the constant danger of Salafis, the uprooting of Christian presence in Iraq and the loss of lands by Syrian Christians, the Lebanese political system, in its deliberation about the electoral law, ignores the demands of the six sects, half of the Christian sects, called "Christian minorities". They have 63 000 electors and should have 3 MPs in any law."
