Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat on Friday called for dialogue “for the sake of rescuing the country and overcoming obstacles,” stressing that “nothing is impossible.”
Commenting on the release on Friday of 11 Lebanese Shiite pilgrims who were abducted in Syria’s Aleppo, Jumblat told Future News television: “The phone call between (former) premier Sheikh Saad Hariri and Speaker Nabih Berri was the most important thing, because problems can be overcome through communication and dialogue.”
“The phone call made me optimistic and we hope meetings and talks will be held at a broader level, according to the calls for dialogue voiced by Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz and President Michel Suleiman,” Jumblat added.
Addressing the latest unrest in the North, the Druze leader said: “After the tensions that erupted in Tripoli and after the killing of sheikhs Ahmed Abdul Wahed and Mohammed Merheb in Akkar, efforts were exerted to restore calm because only rapprochement and dialogue can solve problems.”
