Harb after visiting Maarab: We back any dialogue amongst Lebanese

JANUARY 19, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Telecom Minister, Boutros Harb, voiced support to any dialogue among the Lebanese as it helps bringing viewpoints together and easing tension among the various political spectrums of society.

Minister Harb’s fresh stance on Monday came in the wake of his visit to Maarab, where he met with Lebanese Forces head, Samir Geagea, in presence of lawmaker Antoine Zahra.

Talks reportedly dwelt on an array of hour issues.

“We hope that such a dialogue will lead to a common, serious denominator to rebuild the country on the basis of principles upon which States are built,” said Harb, hoping that this dialogue would not lead to bargaining or agreements at the expense of the State.

On the Israeli attack in Syria’s Qunaitra, Harb said that they hope that Hezbollah would not act in response to the Qunaitra incident, in order to avoid plunging Lebanon into an undesired crisis.

On the other hand, Geagea met with former Minister, Ziad Baroud, where they broached the latest developments on the local and regional arena.

Baroud handed Geagea a book entitled “Administrative Decentralization Project Law” issued by the Special Administrative Decentralization Committee with the Commission’s report on the detailed underlying principles.
