Geagea lashes out at Nasrallah speech

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea on Wednesday charged that the latest speech of Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah was “full of fallacies and lies” regarding Saudi Arabia’s role in Lebanon and the region.

Speaking to Sky News Arabia, Geagea added that “taking up arms is not at all the LF’s plan.”

“What happened in Tayyouneh showed that we have no right at all to take up arms, seeing as the incident showed that the there is a Lebanese state institution, the Lebanese Army, which is ready to protect the Lebanese and separate between them,” the LF leader said.

Asked whether he will run for president, Geagea said: “I’m not a candidate in the classic sense of the word, but I’m a natural candidate, seeing as the LF leader is currently the head of the biggest Christian party in Lebanon, but what’s more important at the moment is finding a real republic.”

He also stressed that “repeating the scenario of the Maarab Agreement” to “secure Free Patriotic Movement chief Jebran Bassil’s election as president” is not possible, noting that “what happened once due to the intersection of certain circumstances will not be repeated today.”
