Bassil: Alliance with Hezbollah has entered different stage
Free Patriotic Movement chief Jebran Bassil has confirmed that “the alliance with Hezbollah has become in a different stage.”
“The country’s situation requires leaving the current alignments in order to rebuild Lebanon,” Bassil told Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hadath television.
Noting that he does not want to run for the presidency, Bassil said he “drew lessons from the (presidential) experience of ex-president Michel Aoun.”
Separately, Bassil lauded Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblat for “voicing responsible remarks regarding the presidency.”
“We are communicating about that with the other camp,” Bassil added, referring to Jumblat’s remarks that the new president should not be a “confrontation president.”
