Franjieh: Nasrallah’s speech spells the end of Doha accord


Former Lebanese MP Samir Franjieh slammed Monday Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah’s recent speech spells the end of the Doha Agreement.

Franjieh told MTV that Hezbollah’s way of dealing with the Special Tribunal for Lebanon is “wrong and being exaggerated,” stressing that Prime Minister Saad Hariri would not interfere in any indictment issued by the tribunal.

The only way for the party to get out of its crisis, Franjieh added, is through returning to the state because its agenda will fail in Lebanon.

The Doha accord was an agreement reached by rival Lebanese factions on May 21, 2008 in Doha, Qatar. The agreement marked the end of an 18-month long political crisis in Lebanon.
