Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil said on Tuesday that the Lebanese won't allow divisions to sow discord among them and that the crisis that emerged in the wake of PM Saad Hariri's resignation can be turned into an opportunity for national unity.

“We can turn this crisis into an opportunity. Today, we are all losers in what happened, but we will emerge from the crisis,” said Bassil after holding talks with Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Latif Daryan at Dar al-Fatwa.

“The only solution is to stay involved,” stated Bassil, adding “The Lebanese will not allow division to be sown among us. We all want stability and peace. Whatever we attain by understanding is an achievement.”

Hariri announced his shock resignation on Saturday in a broadcast from the Saudi capital, decrying what he called the "grip" of Hizbullah and Iran on Lebanon. He also said he feared for his life.

The acting president:

في ظل غياب الحريري.. باسيل يقابل بالرفض من بهية ونادر الحريري في بيت الوسط!

صادر المعلومات عينها أكدت لـ”الأنباء” أيضا ان الوزير جبران باسيل زار بيت الوسط الأحد الماضي وعرض على نادر الحريري مدير مكتب الرئيس سعد الحريري ومستشاره الأول تشكيل الحكومة العتيدة، هو او والدته النائب بهية الحريري، لكنهما رفضا العرض، كما رفض رئيس كتلة “المستقبل” فؤاد السنيورة اي مرشح، قائلا: مرشحنا سعد الحريري.

what are the constitution, the national pact or the institutions to Bassil? Nothing! He can offer the position of PM to whoever he likes.

yes the constitution says the president holds consultative meetings with political parties represented in parliament and NOT his son-in-law.
