This statement is to remind everbody about U.N. resolution #520 and the importance it has for the Liberation of Lebanon. The Guardians of the Cedars are emphasizing on the importance of liberating the Lebanese territory from all foreign forces. We believe that a balanced and simultaneous withdrawal of all forces would lead to the fastest and most harmless liberation of our land.
