BEIRUT: Lebanon’s General Security chief Maj. Gen. Abbas Ibrahim and United Nations Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi discussed the case of two kidnapped bishops held in Syria during a meeting in Qatar, the National News Agency reported.
Ibrahim arrived in Qatar earlier this week to follow up on the case of the two abducted bishops.
The NNA said the General Security chief and Brahimi addressed the role that the U.N. could play to help resolve the case.
The two also discussed recent developments in the region, the state-run agency’s report said.
Aleppo’s Greek Orthodox Archbishop Paul Yazigi and Syriac Orthodox Archbishop Yohanna Ibrahim were abducted in April by armed men near the Turkish border.
Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamid al-Thani has vowed to help resolve the case.
