Free Patriotic Movement chief Jebran Bassil said Wednesday he told President Michel Aoun to hold dialogue regardless of the number of boycotters, adding that dialogue is the “way to salvation”.
Bassil said after meeting Aoun in Baabda that “it is not true that there are two camps in Lebanon, at least the FPM doesn’t belong to any camp.”
He added that “those who won’t attend should be held responsible.”
“Those who are refusing the dialogue are refusing to find solutions to the three important topics that the dialogue will discuss, for political and electoral reasons,” Bassil said.
Bassil held Hizbullah and Prime Minister Najib Miqati responsible for Cabinet’s paralysis, adding that the FPM does not have the ability to convince Hizbullah to return to attending Cabinet sessions.
“What is happening is a political plan before the elections aiming to raise the USD exchange rate while preventing forensic audit and preventing the judiciary from taking its role,” Bassil decried.
