He was known for having good relationships with the majority of the presidents of the Republic of Lebanon from the 1950s until his last days. In addition, he met with various heads of state, such as the Kings of Greece, Pablo and Federica and the presidents of Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil and Chile.
