Nasrallah, Aoun Urge Political Powers to Safeguard Lebanon against Strife


Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah held talks with Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun on the latest developments in Lebanon, reported various media outlets on Tuesday.

The two officials, who met on Monday, agreed that the 2006 memorandum of understanding between Hizbullah and the FPM should serve as a blueprint for all the parties in Lebanon.

This blueprint will in turn help avert strife in the country.

The meeting was attended by FPM official, Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil, and Nasrallah’s aide Hussein Khalil and party liaison officer Wafiq Safa.

In addition, the gatherers were in agreement over their stances on terrorism and “the inevitability of confronting it with all possible means, especially national unity.”

Lebanon has been faced with the possibility of the spread of extremists to the country in light of the clashes in August between the army and Islamists from Syria in the northeastern border town of Arsal.

Tensions have also been high between the Lebanese people and Syrian refugees given the Islamists’ kidnapping and beheading of a number of soldiers and policemen they had abducted from Arsal at the end of the clashes.
