Geagea: Dialogue between LF and FPM begins to bear fruit

JANUARY 11, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) The leader of the Lebanese Forces, Samir Geagea, said on Sunday that the dialogue between the LF and the Free Patriotic Movement began to show positive results.

In an interview with the Kuwaiti daily Al-Siassa, Geagea said that the next parliamentary session dedicated for presidential elections could end successfully, if parliamentary blocs decided to go and vote in Parliament.

He categorically rejected the boycott of parliamentary sessions, dubbing this a “crippling measure to the country at all levels.”

Geagea clarified that the dialogue between his party and the FPM was not limited to the issue of presidential elections, but went beyond it to discuss key issues in order to achieve a clear vision for the country.

While reassuring that the security situation in Lebanon was stable, the LF chief reiterated his call for Hezbollah to leave Syria, to spare Lebanon the impact of the struggle going on in said country. Within that context, Geagea said that a most probably scenario for the future of Syria was an accord between Syrian protagonists similar to that of Lebanon’s Taif Accord. However, he ruled out the possibility of the division of Syria.
