Report: Geagea May Visit Saudi Arabia soon, to Meet with Haririإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Saudi Arabia is determined to invite a number of Lebanese political figures to visit it in order to “bolster the consensual atmosphere” produced by the formation of a new government, reported the daily An Nahar on Sunday.
These figures include Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea, who may visit the kingdom soon, added the daily.
His visit may include a meeting with former Prime Minister Saad Hariri.
The meeting may tackle the latest developments in Lebanon, especially the formation of the cabinet and the differences between the Lebanese Forces and Mustaqbal Movement over this issue.
Geagea last visited Saudi Arabia in 2010.
Ties have deteriorated between the Movement and Lebanese Forces after Hariri agreed to participate with Hizbullah in Prime Minsiter Tammam Salam's government.
Geagea had been adamant to stay out of the cabinet, saying he would not share power with Hizbullah.
He has also reportedly expressed dismay at the recent rapprochement between Hariri and his foe Free Patriotic Movement chief MP Michel Aoun.
