Lebanon's PM calls for talks with Hizbullah

(MENAFN) On Sunday, Lebanon's Prime Minister Saad Hariri stressed that dialogue is the only way to resolve the differences with Hizbullah.

"Lebanon and the Sunni community are being targeted, but we, through our behavior, have the choice to preserve the community or abandon it," Hariri said after talks in Msaitbeh with former premier and incumbent Beirut MP Tammam Salam, who will run on a Mustaqbal list in the upcoming parliamentary polls.

"To preserve the community, it is necessary to endorse the approach of the late Saeb Salam and martyr premier Rafik Hariri, who were sacrificing themselves for the sake of the community and the country without considering their personal interests," Hariri added.

Turning to the issue of the relation with Hizbullah, the premier said: "If I don't engage in dialogue with Hizbullah, then with whom will I be engaged in dialogue? Dialogue takes place with those whom we differ with, not with those whom we agree with."
