The diplomat, speaking during a meeting with a senior Lebanese politician, said that since the presidential void would definitely affect the entire situation in Lebanon, efforts would be made by the International Support Group for Lebanon in New York to come up with a solution to the Lebanese presidential crisis, especially as the international community maintained its support for Lebanon's stability.The politician also spoke about the dramatic developments in Iraq, where the Al-Qaeda splinter group the Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria, has captured large swaths of territory, particularly in the north.ISIS has not yet reached the apex of its achievements in Iraq and the group is now focused on the Ramadi-Haditha crossing, as a prelude to seizing the central government headquarters in Baghdad, according to the Lebanese politician.According to the politician, there was a deluge of information that was published in media outlets last year which pointed to the imminent outbreak of a sectarian war in Iraq and to the growth of ISIS' military strength in both Iraq and Syria.
