The Future parliamentary bloc held a meeting this Tuesday under the chairmanship of MP Bahia Hariri, during which conferees tackled the latest local and regional developments, namely “the implications of the joint US-Israeli declaration on the Deal of the Century, and the unanimous Palestinian reactions against the deal,” according to a statement issued after the meeting.
Conferees deemed said Deal “an episode in the series of liquidating the Palestinian cause and furthering the scheme to Judaize Arab Jerusalem.”
The bloc affirmed its “full solidarity with the Palestinian leadership, and its commitment to the Lebanese and Arab position expressed in the statement issued by the Arab League in Cairo,” stressing that “the Arab peace initiative endorsed by the Beirut summit is considered a sound and realistic framework for achieving peace and establishing an independent Palestinian State with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital.”
“The position on settlement is a final and uncompromising matter. It is an integral part of the Lebanese national accord and the text of the Constitution. Also, the right of return for the Palestinian people cannot be separated from any settlement that seeks to achieve a lasting and real peace,” the statement read.
Locally, the bloc announced that “its attendance or non-attendance at parliamentary sessions falls within its democratic right,” stressing that “the bloc’s attendance at any parliamentary session stems from its belief in the supervisory and legislative role it plays, and its commitment to working within the constitutional institutions and not allowing their disruption, for the sake of the country’s public interest.”
