Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri praised Wednesday the National Charter drafted by the Maronite Church and said the document should act as a road map for building up the country and strengthening national unity.Future parliamentary bloc leader MP Fouad Siniora also expressed support for the charter, saying it confirmed the Lebanese national vision during a critical period, and symbolized a continuation of the Maronite Church's long and historic role in the country."We support what came out of this charter which was launched according to the accumulation of progressive national stances which aim at fortifying Lebanon's independence, freedom, sovereignty and its national life, which is based on coexistence between Lebanese," he added.He said the charter was a "blessed national step" which would revive the state and reinforce the commitment to the Baabda Declaration. Harb added that the charter called on politicians to rise above personal demands for the sake of the national interest.
