BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 A.M.) – The leader of the Lebanese Forces Party, Samir Geagea, blasted Sudanese President, Omar Al-Bashir, for visiting Syria on Sunday.
Geagea said in a statement on Monday that Al-Bashir’s surprise visit to Syria had “ignored the suffering of 10 million Syrians” at the hands of the Syrian government and their allies.
“Al-Bashir visited Damascus as if there was no need whatsoever for any political process in Syria,” he continued.
“Under the current circumstances, any visit to Damascus comes at the expense of hundreds of thousands of slain Syrians and will contribute to keeping Syria fragmented,” he added.
Geagea has long been an opponent of the Syrian government since his days serving as military commander of the Lebanese Forces Party.
