Wehbi: Dialogue between Hezbollah, Future mitigates tension

JANUARY 16, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Future Parliamentary bloc MP, Amine Wehbi, said on Friday that dialogue between Hezbollah and Future Movement aimed to ease the simmering sectarian tension at the local scene.

Interviewed by the Voice of Lebanon radio station, the lawmaker saw eye-to-eye with Hezbollah Secretary General, who said in an interview accorded to Al-Mayadeen T.V. that the ongoing dialogue between both parties has already alleviated tension between Muslim Sunnis and Shiites.

However, Wehbi said that Sayyed Nasrallah had a long way to cross before meeting with Former Prime Minister Saad Al-Hariri.

“There should be touched plummeting tension regarding the Presidential void. [Hezbollah] should alter the way by which it’s handling the election of a new president,” he added.
