Geagea: Suleiman’s defense strategy is contradictory


Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea on Tuesday said President Michel Suleiman’s latest statement regarding the defense strategy is in contradiction with the inaugural speech.

“President Michel Suleiman’s position on the defense strategy issue represents the stance of one group of Lebanese and not everybody’s view,” Geagea told reporters.

“This position is in contradiction with the inaugural speech,” Geagea stressed.

He believed a consensus President “should not speak on behalf of a group of Lebanese and adopt its position.”

Suleiman should have expressed “the opinion of the vast majority of citizens,” Geagea thought.
