NNA – Change and Reform bloc Head, MP Michel Aoun, said upon leaving the “Center House” where he met with Future Movement leader Saad Hariri, “There is no double, triple or quadripartite agreement. There is a rather an accord on ways to manage the country’s affairs.”
“We visited [former] Prime Minister Saad Hariri to thank him for supporting our candidature to the presidency. We have both pledged to get the job done and bring Lebanon out of the crisis. (…) With dialogue, no party loses, and Lebanon eventually wins,” Aoun said.
“We wanted to discuss the pact, since it is not a Christian matter, but an agreement between all the Muslim and Christian components to adhere to conviviality, on the basis of equality. It is therefore not in a bilateral pact,” Aoun said.
“Trying to eliminate or control a certain sect tampers with the message of Lebanon which we are tasked to preserve, and this is what we agreed on,” he went on.
“We affirm that those who are opposing today are basing their judgment on old beliefs. (…) Lebanon is the jewel of the world. Can you believe that, with all what is going on in the world, we still have our independence,” Aoun said.
