Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea said Friday that the delicate situation Lebanon was going through warranted the Christian meeting in Bkirki.
"We are facing challenges, most importantly the explosive situation in the region which will leave an impact on us as Lebanese it we do not act," Geagea told reporters following the meeting held under Patriarch Nasrallah Sfeir.
Geagea said it was "not normal" for the Opposition to deal with matters outside of State institutions.
"They want to take to the streets, but the street is not the solution," Geagea told the Opposition without naming it.
"There is hope," Geagea said. "There is the President of the Republic, the Prime Minister and Parliament Speaker and a Government until further notice -- security institutions and government departments."
"As long as the officials are determined to carry out their responsibilities the situation is good," he added.
