Lebanese Forces chief lashes out at Free Patriotic Movement chief

(MENAFN) Lebanese Forces chief Samir Geagea lashed out at Free Patriotic Movement chief Jebran Bassil saying his concept of partnership is that "he works single-handed" while everyone else follows, the Saudi Asharq al-Awsat daily reported on Monday.

"The concept of partnership for Foreign Minister and FPM head Jebran Bassil is that he works alone while we are supposed to back him. He accuses us of obstructing the government whenever we make a criticism, and considers it an infringement on the (presidential) term," criticized Geagea.

He said the LF's stances regarding power generating vessels must not perceived as obstruction, "obstruction should only be seen as such when we reject issues we have both agreed on in advance," said Geagea.

The Maarab Agreement with the FPM "is not a political alliance," added Geagea, "we have an agreement with the FPM that each party maintains its own political positioning."
