Bassil Says Important to Preserve FPM-Hizbullah 'Strategic' Alliance
Free Patriotic Movement chief and caretaker Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil on Tuesday called for preserving his movement's “strategic agreement” with Hizbullah.
“We maybe parted ways with Hizbullah democratically in the latest elections, but we preserved our strategic agreement and what's most important is the continuation of this agreement,” Bassil said during an iftar banquet in the Jbeil town of Almat.
He added: “In this country no one is submissive to anyone and no one is stronger than the other. We are all submissive to Lebanon through our national unity.”
