NNA - Lebanese Forces (LF) leader Samir Geagea branded on Friday his meeting with former Prime Minister Saad Hariri as profound, touching in depth on the presidential issue.

"Dispute over political issue has started to narrow," Geagea said in the wake of his lengthy meeting with Hariri at his Maarab residence.

Geagea said that Hariri shall meet with General Michel Aoun sooner or later, saying "Don't await Hariri's final decision soon... Yet, we are now at the beginning of the road."

The LF leader stressed that no one can annul any side in the country, stressing the dire need to exert all efforts to elect a president of the republic as a solution to all standing problems, hailing Hariri's endeavors in this regard.

Geagea sounded optimistic over the presidential issue "more than before."

"We are determined to support General Michel Aoun to presidency," Geagea said, pointing out that Hezbollah neither wants a president nor wants Aoun a president as well.
