gemayel amin 0428Former Lebanese president and Phalange Party leader Amin Gemayel told Future News television on Saturday that he disagrees with that Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt over the issue of Hezbollah arms

Gemayel was responding to As Safir report in which Jumblatt was quoted as saying he wants to eliminate discussions over the issue of Hezbollah’s arms.

Gemayel said: if Jumblatt does support the suggestion , then the Kataeb would oppose the move.

Jumblatt told As safir in remarks published Friday that he “won’t hesitate to ask national dialogue leaders to stop debate on the resistance arms issue”. Jumblatt also criticized turning the issue into daily verbal clashes between politicians.

Analysts are speculating that ” elimination of the discussions over the issue of Hezbollah’s arms”, may be is the price that Jumblatt had to pay for his trip to Syria.

Hezbollah chief sayyed Hassan Nasrallah was instrumental in paving withe way for Jumblatt’s visit to Damascus.
