Lebanese Forces chief Samir Geagea said the upcoming visit of President Michel Aoun to Saudi Arabia will carry important issues particularly reactivating the military aide program for the Lebanese Army, and considered Aoun's travel to Iran as a “normal” procedure.
“Aoun's Trip to Tehran is a normal matter, and if Iran wants to provide aide to the Lebanese State, why not?” said Geagea in an interview to the Kuwaiti al-Qabas daily on Saturday, rejecting the notion about the return of Bashar Assad's influence on Lebanon or Syria.
On Aoun's visit to Saudi Arabia which will begin next week, Geagea described the step as “excellent. It will carry important issues mainly the military aide to the Lebanese Army and the return of Gulf tourists to Lebanon.”
The President is scheduled to kick start a trip to SA on Monday that will followed by trips to Qatar and other Arab countries.
