Miqati-Aoun Bicker over International Resolutions, False Witnessesإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
The differences between PM Najib Miqati and Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun during the process of the cabinet formation might be reflected on the policy statement, al-Liwaa daily reported Thursday.
It said Miqati wants to include a statement that Lebanon remains committed to international resolutions, including 1701, in the ministerial statement but the FPM rejects a reference to any Security Council resolution.
Aoun accused Miqati during the government formation process that he was delaying the lineup but the two sides eventually reached an agreement on the MP’s demands.
Another dispute lately rose between the two sides over the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. The FPM wants to include in the ministerial statement a clause on false witnesses in ex-Premier Rafik Hariri’s assassination case while Miqati totally rejects such a move, al-Liwaa said.
It quoted sources as saying that the issue of the tribunal is still a point of contention between the two sides.
