Report: Jumblat to Visit Marada Movement Chief to Discuss Latest Developments

Head of the Progressive Socialist Party MP Walid Jumblat is scheduled to hold talks on Saturday with Marada Movement chief MP Suleiman Franjieh, reported al-Liwaa newspaper on Saturday.

It said that the talks will focus on the latest developments in Lebanon, especially in light of the return to Lebanon of head of the Mustaqbal Movement MP Saad Hariri following a three-year absence.

The talks will also address Lebanon's efforts to combat terrorism following the army's clashes with Islamists earlier this week in the northeastern town of Arsal.

Jumblat had recently held talks with other prominent March 8 alliance members, most notably Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah in late July and Free Patriotic Movement chief MP Michel Aoun on Tuesday.

The PSP leader's talks with both officials addressed the presidential deadlock and the importance of backing the Lebanese army.
