BEIRUT: The Lebanese Forces turned down a request by their rivals in the Free Patriotic Movement to hold a meeting as part of the latter's efforts to end the ongoing political stalemate, LF MP Fadi Karam said in remarks published Thursday.

"[LF leader] Samir Geagea informed the Free Patriotic Movement his bloc's apology for not meeting with the FPM lawmakers," Karam told Al-Akhbar.

"The [FPM's] initiative is useless, in fact harmful, but we could meet with them on a political level or during Parliament's general secretariat meetings,” he added.

The FPM launched an initiative last month to open up to the various parliamentary blocs with the aim of easing tensions in the country and ending the paralysis in Parliament and the government.

The party headed by MP Michel Aoun held talks with their rivals in the Future bloc and the Kataeb Party as well as lawmakers from MP Walid Jumblatt’s bloc.
