Kanaan: FPM, LF en route to finalizing worksheet

JANUARY 19, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) MP Ibrahim Kanaan said in an interview with the Voice of Lebanon radio that the Free Patriotic Movement and the Lebanese Forces are about to finish the joint worksheet amid total frankness over several files, adding that “after the completion of this paper, there will be agreement on the date of the meeting between MP Michel Aoun and Dr. Samir Geagea.”

“This paper consists of two parts, the first is about the national sovereign files and the repercussions of the Syrian crisis and the crises of the region on the Lebanese interior, while the second part is about the Christian presence, the implementation of the Taif, the State authorities and means to correct the defects, and the issue of balanced development,” Kanaan explained, noting that this worksheet is the first of its kind between the two parties.

The MP finally pointed out that there may be a way to reach common denominators.

“It is about time to stop living in the past. We must build the future with a new spirit and that is what we are trying to do,” he concluded.
