Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea held talks Tuesday evening with Prime Minister Saad Hariri at the Center House in downtown Beirut.

A statement issued by Hariri's office said the meeting was also attended by Culture Minister Ghattas Khoury, Information Minister Melhem Riachi and ex-minister Bassem al-Sabaa.

“The meeting tackled the general political situations in the country and the latest developments,” the statement said.

MTV said Interior Minister Nouhad al-Mashnouq did not attend the meeting although he “shook hands with Geagea before leaving the Center House.”

Relations between the LF and Hariri's al-Mustaqbal Movement were strained after some Mustaqbal officials accused the LF of encouraging Saudi leaders to press Hariri to resign in November.

The row was also linked to Geagea's statement following Hariri's shock resignation from Saudi Arabia that the premier should have resigned earlier and that "no self-respecting person would stay in the government after all the events of the past few months."
