Suleiman Continues Consultations, Arslan for Practical Measures to Solve Crisis

President Michel Suleiman held talks with Lebanese Democratic Party leader Talal Arslan on Saturday as part of consultations aimed at ending the political deadlock.

Arslan said he told Suleiman that the cabinet should be responsible and play its role. A solution should also be found to the issue of false witnesses, the MP told reporters in Baabda palace.

Arslan said he favored practical measures rather than engaging in dialogue to solve the crisis.

Meanwhile, Voice of Lebanon radio station said that Suleiman will meet with Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblat on Monday.
