Geagea Travels to Qatar for Official Visit

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea traveled Sunday to Qatar for an official visit, state-run National News Agency reported.

He was accompanied by his wife MP Sethrida Geagea and an LF delegation comprising ex-minister Tony Karam, foreign affairs officer Pierre Bou Assi and Gulf dept. official Fadi Salameh, NNA said.

In July, Geagea held talks in Saudi Arabia with the kingdom's top officials.

On Saturday, the LF leader announced that his party will not participate in a dialogue that Speaker Nabih Berri has called for to tackle Lebanon's controversial issues, describing it a “waste of time.”

Geagea said it was an “impossible assumption” that the conferees could agree on a presidential candidate.

He also slammed the government for failing to address the unprecedented waste management crisis and the rest of the country's political, economic and social problems.
