Jumblat after meeting Berri: we hope that Lebanon remains outside this circle unless the Israeli enemy insists on attacking

House Speaker, Nabih Berri, received at Ain al-Tineh Palace this evening, the former head of the Progressive Socialist Party, former MP Walid Jumblatt, accompanied by the head of the “Democratic Gathering” parliamentary bloc, PSP Chief, MP Taymour Jumblatt, and former Minister Ghazi Al-Aridi, where the general situation topped their discussions, particularly the latest political and security developments in Lebanon and the region in light of Israel’s continued aggression against the Gaza Strip.

Following the meeting, former MP Jumblatt said: “I discussed with Speaker Nabih Berri the current developments and we of course hope that Lebanon will remain outside this circle, unless the Israeli enemy insists on attacking…Our policy was basically non-aggression, but we notice attack after attack every day by Israel.”

He added: “What is happening is terrible. Some forget the basic issue, and some forget the basic project that all Arabs and almost the entire world agreed to in theory, which is the two-state solution.”
