As concerns mount over tensions surging between Prime Minister Saad Hariri and Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil, Arab diplomats urged Lebanese officials to maintain internal stability in light of the recent regional developments, al-Joumhouria daily reported on Tuesday.
Arab diplomatic bodies described as "neutral" urged Lebanese officials to maintain internal stability and distance Lebanon from any tension, the daily quoted sources as saying.
“We advise the Lebanese to avoid internal imbalance in light of the developments in the region. Lebanon must take rapid steps towards economic recovery. Any befall in Lebanon not only affects it, but also affects all Arabs, especially those who are keen on it,” said the sources.
Tensions had surged between the FPM and Hariri's al-Mustaqbal Movement in recent days after Bassil threatened to topple the government if it does not address the issues of refugees, electricity and corruption in a swift manner, and after he lashed out at the Brussels conference on refugees.
