Al-Mustaqbal Movement on Friday voiced “regret” over MP Walid Jumblat's latest remarks on Saudi Arabia, calling on him to “correct his stance.”

“Al-Mustaqbal Movement regrets the style and content of Mr. Walid Jumblat's rhetoric towards the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia during his interview two days ago on Future TV,” the movement said in a statement.

“This approach is not compatible with his history, the history of the Progressive Socialist Party and his personal relation with a brotherly country that has always stood by Lebanon and its causes,” Mustaqbal added.

And stressing the need for “all Lebanese forces to refrain from attacking or insulting brotherly countries in a manner that might jeopardize Lebanon's vital interests and the soundness of its ties with its Arab neighborhood,” the movement said it “calls on Mr. Jumblat to correct his latest stance on KSA and its leadership.”

Slamming the Saudi-led war in Yemen as “absurd,” Jumblat warned in his interview that “no one can win in Yemen,” describing the war-torn country as “the Afghanistan of the Arab world.”

“In my opinion, every war is absurd and dialogue is much better than any war that consumes money and souls,” Jumblat added.

The PSP leader also criticized U.S. President Donald Trump's visit to Saudi Arabia and said that he is “against the privatization” of the Aramco oil firm.

“It belongs to the Saudi people and Arabs,” Jumblat said.

Yes, It's better to let the Iranian owned Huthis control Yemen through dialogue.

For 2 years prior to the Saudi intervention, there were more than 70 agreements with the Huthis and all of them were not honored and they took over the country uncontested.

As said above, your plate is full .... 'mind your own business'.

The Druze leader is irrelevant as always... just like he was 2 days ago with the McKenzie comment.
