GEAGEA, MAKARI TAKE UP HOUR ISSUES

Lebanese Forces leader, Samir Geagea, on Thursday met at his Meerab residence with Deputy Speaker, Farid Makari, with whom he discussed the latest political developments on the local arena.

On emerging, Makari said talks dwelt on the forthcoming parliamentary session, and the salary scale issue.

On the Syrian refugee topic, Makari stressed it was due time for refugees to return to their homeland, especially that the State's treasury can no longer put up with the brunt of the influx.

Makari emphasized that the Lebanese government is the sole side entitled to take a decision on the Syrian refugees' issue.

On the other hand, Makari heaped praises on the bold efforts undertaken by the security forces, whether at the internal level or in protection of the country. He hailed the internal security, general security and the Lebanese army, which proved to be cabable of protecting the Lebanese borders.

On the forthcoming parliamentary elections, Makari considered that it was premature to speak about electoral alliances and nominations, disclosing that he was not running for elections.
