Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea said that Hizbullah stirred “an artificial uproar as to the agreement with the U.S. Embassy in order to pressure PM Saad Hariri,” voicing his concerns over “Hizbullah’s link to the schemes of the Islamic Republic of Iran.”
In an interview with the Qatari al-Watan daily to be published Monday, Geagea declared his backing “for the agreement signed between the Lebanese government and the U.S. Embassy, because it doesn’t represent a security agreement as claimed, but rather a training and equipment agreement.”

Geagea addressed the Lebanese group which opposed the agreement by asking: “Is it in Lebanon’s interest to maintain a good relation with the U.S. or not?” He reminded them that “Lebanon is not Cuba or North Korea.”

The LF leader voiced his concerns over “the repercussions on Lebanon of the confrontation between the Hebrew state and the west on one side, and Iran and Hizbullah on the other,” stressing that “Hizbullah would act, if there was a need, in the context of the major Iranian confrontation and the matter is as simple as that.”
