Gemayel: Coup Attempt is Drawing Near and Our Confrontation Should be through Legitimacyإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Phalange Party leader Amin Gemayel noted Thursday that the "Lebanese system is at risk and we should resist all that may destabilize it."
"We should confront the plan to topple the system and components of the state with legitimacy through parliament and Cabinet," he said.
"Experience has demonstrated that insistence on holding on to institutions and legitimacy is a resistance factor as well," he added.
Commenting on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's visit to Lebanon, Gemayel stressed that it is important for the country to be open towards all nations and any foreign leader is welcome as long as he supports peace and stability in Lebanon.
"We are not worried about the visit itself, but the developments after the trip especially since Iran's neighbors in Lebanon are defying another team of Lebanese, some laws, and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon and its indictment," he said.
