Lebanon’s Bassil says Aoun-Hariri partnership will lead to government


LONDON (Reuters) – The partnership between Lebanon’s president and designated prime minister, along with the national consensus, “will certainly lead to the formation of a new government, despite all obstacles,” its foreign minister said on Wednesday.

Gebran Bassil, a member of President Michel Aoun’s party, was speaking at an investment conference in London where Prime Minister-designate Saad al-Hariri is due to speak later on Wednesday. Lebanon’s political parties have failed to form a new government since a general election that was held in May.
