Geagea hits back at Bassil over dialogue, Bkirki laments response


Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea on Friday snapped back at Free Patriotic Movement chief Jebran Bassil over accusations related to the possibility of holding dialogue over the country’s next president.

“Dialogue requires advocates of dialogue,” Geagea tweeted, responding to Bassil’s remarks.

Bassil had earlier lamented that Geagea is “rejecting everything.”

“He neither wants to come to Bkikri nor to engage in dialogue,” Bassil added, after talks with Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi in Bkirki.

Commenting on Geagea’s remarks, Bkirki sources told MTV: “This is not the time to settle personal scores.”

“The situation is delicate and requires both parties to rise above trivialities, especially by the heads of the biggest two Christian blocs,” the sources added.
