Abul Gheit says Arab League ready to play its role in Lebanese dialogue
Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit said Thursday that Lebanon can not bear a presidential vacuum and that the league is willing to play its role in a Lebanese dialogue.
During the Arab Economic Forum in Beirut, Abul Gheit considered that the way to recovery is by electing a new president and making reforms, urging parties to rise above the divisions and to prioritize Lebanon's interests.
Abul Gheit also called for maintaining an open and direct dialogue between all parties. "The Arab League has the willingness to do what it is asked to do in this regard," Abul Gheit said, adding that the Taif Accord remains an indispensable national pact for "stability and civil peace in Lebanon."
