Geagea says Hezbollah will return from Syria soon, will be more modest

Lebanese Forces Party Chief Samir Geagea said Saturday that Hezbollah will return to Lebanon soon and will be more modest.

In an interview with ‘Al-Modon” electronic newspaper, Geagea ruled out any reflection on the internal scene of this return, saying, “Even if Hezbollah claimed victory, the reality on the ground is known…The State was not the one to ask Hezbollah to go to Syria and therefore, it will not be rewarded.”

Moreover, Geagea deemed that Hezbollah “is undergoing a decisive transformation in its history by entering into the heart of the internal equation in all its details, from proposing multiple dossiers such as combating corruption to other matters, which indicates that the Party wants to integrate more Lebanese-wise.”

“If Hezbollah is serious in bringing up the fight against corruption, we will cooperate with it,” he added.

Geagea stressed that the current mandate must receive full support in order to ensure its success, because it is a unique opportunity for the Lebanese in light of the consensus and enthusiasm of all parties to combat corruption.

He confirmed herein his adherence to the Me’rab Understanding and to the good relationship with President Michel Aoun, adding that efforts will continue to stabilize the relationship with the Free Patriotic Movement.

Over the new cabinet formation, Geagea considered that the upcoming government “must be new in every sense, with new faces, working for the benefit of citizens and not politicians.” He called for a government consisting of 24 ministers in an effort to cut down on waste expenditure, while reiterating attachment to his Party’s demand for rotation in distribution of ministerial portfolios.

At the regional level, the LF Party Chief considered the transformation witnessed in the region and the Islamic world, in particular, as “not only political, but an evolutionary era that will produce a renaissance similar to the Christian Renaissance.”

“We will see a real Islam different from the image that has been portrayed over the past years, and what is happening in Saudi Arabia is a major development, and a progress that will cast its positive shadow on the entire world,” Geagea asserted.

In response to a question on whether the next stage will witness normalization with the Syrian regime, Geagea said, “There is no regime in Syria, the equation is international. We want normalization and reform of relations with all of Syria and not one part of the Syrian people.”

Asked about normalization with the Syrian regime from the refugees’ return perspective, he stressed that “it is impossible to normalize with this regime…It is the one to have caused their displacement and does not desire their return…Lebanon will not normalize relations with a regime that does not exist…We want normalization with Syria in full.”

Geagea concluded by expressing optimism regarding the next stage, referring to “a new and serious start with the Future Movement as an ally, and with all other forces.”

“It shall be a new phase indeed, during which coordination in all files shall be strengthened,” he underscored.
