GEAGEA: Lebanon Has Great Interests With US, There is No Need to Remind Nasrallah of His Relationship With Iran
15 Aug 2019
Lebanon - The "Strong Republic" parliamentary bloc held its regular meeting this Thursday in Maarab under the chairmanship of Lebanese Forces Party leader, Samir Geagea, where he congratulated the Lebanese on Eid al-Adha and the Assumption of Virgin Mary, wishing Prime Minister Saad Hariri "success in his visit to Washington."
Speaking in the wake of the meeting, Geagea said that "Lebanon shares great interests with the US," reminding Hezbollah of his relationship with Iran.
In this context, Geagea called on President of the Republic, Michel Aoun and Prime Minister Saad Hariri and the government to take necessary measures against Hezbollah's recent stances that the party will not stand idle if Iran will be exposed to any war.
At the economic level, Geagea ruled out any possibility for the government to carry out any reform, noting that the implementation of these reforms requires serious decisions.
"Wherever we are, we take all issues seriously, such as the recent decision of the Minister of Labor, which created thousands of jobs for Lebanese youth," he said, hoping other ministers would take similar steps.
