NNA – MP Salim Aoun stressed that “there is no solution to the current government crisis except through a meeting between President Michel Aoun and Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri,” noting that “the basis of the current problem is the lack of trust between both parties.”
Speaking in an interview with “Voice of All Lebanon 93.3″ Radio Channel this morning, Aoun said: “The session that was devoted to discussing the letter of the President of the Republic was the one that moved the stalemate conditions in the government dossier.”
He considered that “Hariri should indicate frankly what he is waiting for in regards to the cabinet formation and what he wants, and if he actually agrees to the 24 ministers’ formula.”
“Hariri does not want to form the government before obtaining the approval of the Saudi Kingdom, and the only one benefiting from not reaching a government is the one wishing to fail the covenant,” Aoun went on.
The MP criticized “the bad relationship between the PM-designate and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” noting that “Hariri has become a burden on Lebanon.”
Responding to a question regarding the “Strong Lebanon” deputies’ resigning threat, Aoun explained that “this option exists, but its postponement is linked to the existence of a glimmer of hope for a solution, but when this hope is extinguished, the decision to resign is inevitable.”
