BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – The Minister of Parliament for Lebanese Forces Party Wehbe Qatisha stated on Monday that his political party would do everything in their power to block any attempts of normalization with Syria.
“If the state policy includes a recognition of the Syrian regime, the Lebanese Forces will disapprove and will express reservation, because the status of the Syrian state is still undetermined, neither by Russia, nor Iran, nor Turkey,” Qatisha told a TV interview.
“If they want to make this issue a cause, we will be on the lookout,” he said.
Accordingly, the lawmaker highlighted the necessity of the dissociation policy, stressing that this principle must constitute Lebanon’s permanent strategy regarding inter-Arab conflicts.
Led by Samir Geagea, the Lebanese Forces Party has been one of the staunchest opponents of normalization with the Syrian government, despite repeated calls by several politicians to restore full ties.
