As-Safir, 9-8-2009

Future Movement leader MP Saad Hariri is planning to meet with Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah to discuss several issues, including the formation of the new government, the Lebanese daily As-Safir reported on Tuesday.

The daily read that Hariri was pleased with Nasrallah's speech on Monday night and stressed that building a strong state can only be achieved through dialogue.

Hariri also telephoned Loyalty to Resistance leader MP Mohammed Raad on Monday, assuring that the next cabinet will adopt the same supporting stance toward Hizbullah that the current government embraces.

However, the Future Movement leader warned Raad not to discuss Hizbullah's arms outside the national dialogue sessions, as was decided upon by all parties.

As-Safir learned that Hariri said it was crucial to maintain a calm political atmosphere, instructing his party's media outlets, which include Future TV and al-Mustaqbal newspaper, to commit to promoting calm.
A Future Movement source told As-Safir that "the party's priority for the next phase is dialogue."
