NNA - Former Prime Minister, Najib Mikati, said in a statement on Sunday that "the passing away of former Minister Fouad Boutros constitutes a huge loss of a sincere and authentic Lebanese political figure and diplomat."

"The late Boutros had many noteworthy political positions during the Lebanese war and well-deserves the title of Statesman," said Mikati.

"Perhaps his most important diplomatic action was his clear condemnation of the Israeli enemy's practices," he added.

"Boutros was a pioneering national interlocutor and negotiator...an intelligent, cultivated and brave figure who played a highly significant role within the Lebanese political equation over many years," Mikati concluded.
