Head of Hizbullah's Political Bureau Sayyed Ibrahim Amin Sayyed stressed on Wednesday that the party supports all kinds of dialogue between the rival parties, expressing belief that talks with al-Mustaqbal Movement could lead to solid results.
“Hizbullah's dialogue with al-Mustaqbal indicated that the two sides have serious intentions to reach fruitful results,” Sayyed told reporters after a visit to the Armenian Orthodox Bishopric.
Hizbullah and al-Mustaqbal movement agreed on Monday during their second dialogue session to support efforts to “continue the implementation of the security plan across all Lebanese regions,” revealing that they have made “progress” to defuse the Sunni-Shiite tensions.
The dialogue is being held under the auspices of Speaker Nabih Berri at his residence in Ain el-Tineh.
Dialogue had kicked off on December 23 between the two parties and the first session was aimed at devising a “roadmap” and a “mechanism” for the next sessions.
Sayyed pointed out that Hizbullah supports all kinds of dialogue between the political arch-foes, which is the only way to resolve the crises gripping Lebanon.
Preparations are also underway for a meeting between Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun and Lebanese Forces chief Samir Geagea to resolve points of contention between the old time rivalries.
Asked about the presidential elections stalemate, the Hizbullah official noted that the head of state is capable of playing an effective role in facing the challenges that are threatening Lebanon and all its components.
