FPM denies Bassil has asked to meet Geagea
The Free Patriotic Movement on Wednesday denied that FPM chief Jebran Bassil has asked to meet with Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea over the presidential file.
“Whenever the FPM chief is asked about his readiness to meet with those with whom he has political differences, he answers that he is ready to meet with anyone for the sake of the public interest,” the FPM’s central media committee said in a statement.
“This is a point of strength and impartiality, and when he wants to request any meeting, he will not shy away from doing so without equivocation,” the statement added.
Lebanese Forces MP Antoine Zahra had claimed Tuesday that Bassil had asked to meet with Geagea.
"I think that Bassil has equivocally asked to meet with Geagea over the presidential file, and the latter has refused," Zahra said.
