Report: Nasrallah to meet with Aoun and Bassil


Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah will meet with ex-president Michel Aoun and Free Patriotic Movement leader Jebran Bassil upon the latter’s return from Qatar, informed ministerial sources said.

The meeting will likely be held within a week to “put an end to the crisis between the two parties,” the sources told ad-Diyar newspaper in remarks published Wednesday.

“Aoun has intervened in a bid to melt the political ice and clear the cloudy atmosphere, because it is forbidden to continue the dispute with the ally,” the sources added, noting that “this is the first time that the disagreements between the two parties reach this level.”

Tensions had surged between the two allies in the wake of Hezbollah’s attendance of a caretaker cabinet session boycotted by the FPM.

Hezbollah argued that the session was necessary to approve urgent matters related to people’s affairs as the FPM called the meeting unconstitutional and an attack on the president’s powers amid an ongoing presidential vacuum.

Who forbade Nasrallah from continuing the disagreements? Little doubt, so why not say so?
