uture parliamentary bloc on Tuesday maintained that it held onto the freedom of speech, saying that any attack on liberties constitute an insult to Lebanon.


But the bloc stressed that it would not accept at all any insult to Lebanon "and its flag," rejecting any expression offending the country.


This stance comes in the wake of a caricature that appeared in pan Arab Assharq-al-Awsat newspaper, depicting the Lebanese flag and a caption that describes Lebanon as "a lie."


Future lawmakers convened today in a periodic meeting at Bayt-al-Wassat under the chairmanship of MP Fouad Siniora.


The MPs lashed out at "the continuous campaign tampering with the brotherly Arab countries, especially the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, through lies and slander."


"The insult to the Arab states aims directly at Lebanon," they said in a statement.


Also, the bloc renewed calls upon Hezbollah "to cease implicating Lebanon and the Lebanese into the war in Syria."


"Hezbollah is asked to cease the daily bloodshed of Lebanese young men, who whether return from Syria's battles dead or wounded or handicapped."


Moreover, the lawmakers renewed rejection of settlement of refugees onto the Lebanese soil.


On a different note, they confirmed clinging to the holding the municipal polls on their due time.


They also highlighted the necessity to proceed with the probe into the unauthorized internet networks.


The bloc did not fail to evoke the fresh visit of former Prime Minister, Saad Hariri, to Russia, and his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.


Accordingly, they commended the talks held in Moscow on the situation in Syria and the necessity of a political solution.
