Deputy President of the Free Patriotic Movement, MP Nicolas Sahnawi, stressed, in a statement in the wake of the Strong Lebanon's weekly bloc meeting headed by Minister Gebran Bassil, on the necessity of "forming a government that respects the minimum of fair representation, which requires forming a government of national unity that includes all the parliament components."
"It is important that the government be productive, dominated by consensus between the basic blocs on pressing issues such as displacement, the economy and fighting corruption," he said.
"Our hand is extended to all and we will put aside the differences in the next stage, as we do not want those to affect the work of the cabinet," he added.
Sahnawi touched on the clashes in the Mieh w Mieh camp and its repercussions on neighboring areas. He called on the concerned parties to "spare the Lebanese the dangers resulting from the Syrian displacement so that we do not end up with clashes in the camps of displaced Syrians, similar to those we see currently in Mieh w Mieh."
He praised the opening of the Naseeb crossing, saying that it is "a good first and positive indicator of Lebanese goods transit towards the Arab countries."
He wished in conclusion "to open the border between all Arab countries so as to revive the Lebanese economy," stressing that his words "comes from a purely patriotic background, not political, and that it makes no sense not to let Lebanon benefit from the process of reconstruction of Syria."
