Jaber; Fruitful communication required between March 14, Aoun over presidential issue

SEPTEMBER 3, 2014 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Development and Liberation bloc member, MP Yassine Jaber said in an interview with the Voice of Lebanon radio “in order for the initiative of the March 14 to succeed, it must make a fundamental step toward General Michel Aoun.”

“A successful contact must be made with him in order to move forward in the presidential elections,” he said.

The MP hoped communications would be fruitful “as there is nothing new in the initiative. The only progress is the intention to form a Communication Committee, and since the beginning we have focused on the need for conducting the elections.”

“Success depends on two main movements: the FPM and the Future,” he said.

Jaber refused to comment on the issue of negotiating for the release of prisoners [in return for military hostages], leaving this matter in the hands of the concerned persons.
