The Future Movement considers itself closer to Lebanon's Christians than to Islamist extremists, former Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said Sunday, stressing the party's belief in the Lebanese state as the guarantor of peace and stability.Siniora stressed on the support of the Lebanese Army, the rule of law and the legitimate authorities, refusing "any weapon outside the state's authority".Signed in 2012 by rival political leaders who met at Baabda Palace, the declaration stated that Lebanon should be distanced from regional crises.However, after Hezbollah deliberately announced its involvement in fighting alongside Bashar Assad's regime in Syria, the declaration became widely contested especially by the March 8 coalition.
