Kataeb Party Blames Failure to Commit to Neutrality for Riyadh Summit Confusion

The Lebanese Kataeb party on Monday voiced regret over the confusion that overshadowed Lebanon's participation in the US-Arab Summit in Riyadh, deeming what happened as the result of the country's failure to abide by the dissociation policy. In a statement issued following its weekly meeting, the party's politburo blamed the political authority's submission to non-state armed forces and failure to maitain a neutral position towards the regional conflict for the obvious disregard shown for the Lebanese delegation at the Riyadh summit.
