BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 A.M.) – The Future Movement has called on Walid Jumblatt to “correct his stance” towards Saudi Arabia after his recent remarks about the Gulf kingdom’s crimes in Yemen.
“Harakat Al-Mustaqbal (Future Movement) regrets the style and content of Mr. Walid Jumblat’s rhetoric towards the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia during his interview two days ago on Future TV,” the political party stated, as quoted by Naharnet.
“This approach is not compatible with his history, the history of the Progressive Socialist Party and his personal relation with a brotherly country that has always stood by Lebanon and its causes,” Mustaqbal added.
Jumblatt has remained neutral in regards to the Iran-Saudi Arabia conflict, prompting the Saudi-backed Future Movement to call out the Progressive Socialist Party (Jumblatt’s party) leader over his stance.
