BEIRUT: Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun reassured the Lebanese Thursday that the country’s stability would not be shaken by political tensions linked to last month’s assassination of police intelligence chief Brig. Gen. Wissam al-Hasan.


Speaking to reporters after meeting with Maronite Patriarch Beshara Rai in Bkirki, north of Beirut, Aoun said they had agreed on ways to resolve the current political crisis sparked by Hasan’s killing, but he declined to give details.


The FPM leader said he visited Rai to congratulate him on his recent appointment by Pope Benedict XVI as a cardinal in the Catholic Church.


“We talked about the common issue, which is the current political crisis in Lebanon. We exchanged views on it and we reached an identical vision on ways of solving it,” Aoun said. “We hope that this identical [views] will apply to other parties in order to reach results.”


“We reassure all the Lebanese that stability will not be touched. The intensity of the crisis goes up and down only in speeches. Nothing more than this will happen,” he added.
