Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt on Monday called for re-evaluating the controversial "security agreement with the U.S. and other countries that do not differentiate between jihad/resistance and terrorism." 

Jumblatt urged the Lebanese government to assess the controversial security agreement between the U.S. and the Internal Security Forces according to safeguarding national security and Lebanese sovereignty. 

He said that the agreement "contains a lot of irregularities which are not limited only to the Lebanese-U.S. divergence in defining terrorism, but exceed that to several other practical issues." 

Jumblatt warned against "Lebanon handing over to western security services blank official documents which may lead, one way or another, to forging official documents for possible use in security operations or political assassinations as it happened with the Palestinian leader Mahmoud Al Mabhouh in Dubai."
