Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblat said Monday that he discussed with Turkish officials the situation in Lebanon, the events in Syria and the inter-Palestinian reconciliation.
In remarks to As Safir daily following his return from Turkey, Jumblat lauded the Turkish stance from all issues.
The governing Justice and Development Party (AKP) has always stood by the Arab and Palestinian cause, Jumblat said.
During his visit to Turkey, the Druze leader met with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.
Jumblat’s remarks came as the Kuwaiti al-Anbaa daily reported that he would meet with former PM Saad Hariri in Istanbul but al-Mustaqbal newspaper quoted high-ranking source as saying on Monday that Hariri is currently in Jeddah and has no intention to travel to Turkey.
The sources added that Hariri’s schedule doesn’t include meetings outside Jeddah.
