Russian Embassy: We regret the use of Russia’s role in fabricated news about Jumblatt

In an issued statement by the Russian Embassy in Beirut on Tuesday, it categorically denied recently circulated news by some media and social network outlets intended to discredit Progressive Socialist Party Leader, former MP Walid Jumblatt, by accusing him of sending a letter to Netanyahu and claiming that news of this letter was learned from a "Russian agent" within the Mossad.

The Embassy ruled out such groundless news, stressing that it has no information of this sort whatsoever.

"We are sorry for exploiting the role of Russia in such false and fabricated news. We also emphasize that the Russian side's relation and friendship with Walid Jumblatt and his family and the Progressive Socialist Party are good and continuous, regardless of the difference in views on what is happening in Syria," the statement asserted.

"We take this opportunity to express our utmost appreciation and respect," the Embassy statement concluded.
