Geagea: Hizbullah Will Not Resort to Violence if Indictment Accused Some of its Members


Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea ruled out the possibility that Hizbullah would resort to violence if the indictment would accuse some of its members.

He told the Kuwaiti al-Anbaa newspaper to be published on Thursday: "The party will only reap negative repercussions from violence and it will not yield a single positive outcome."

Furthermore, he said that the efforts led by the Saudi, Syrian, and Iranian ambassadors to Lebanon will not help in ending the country's crisis as the it is an internal one "and we are not in a state of war expect with Israel."

"The other Lebanese team has major regional calculations that start in Iran but do not end at the Mediterranean," he noted.

Geagea added that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's trip to Riyadh and his meeting with Saudi King Abdullah "was not very successful, while the tripartite meeting of ambassadors was aimed at urging their team from not turning to violence in Lebanon."

He revealed that a broad Christian meeting will convene soon and it will produce a political document in the vein of the March 14 forces.

Addressing Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun's campaign against former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, Geagea said: "It will not yield any results, but it is aimed at changing Premier Saad Hariri's position towards the Special Tribunal for Lebanon."
