The Future Movement does not expect core divisions with Hezbollah to be resolved at their dialogue that kicks off Tuesday but does hope to ease sectarian tensions, Future MP Ammar Houri said."We are engaging in dialogue because we have differences and had failed in the past to agree on many core issues," Houri added.He noted that sharp disagreement existed over Hezbollah's military involvement in the raging war in Syria, the party's noncommitment to the decisions of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, Hezbollah's use of arms against rival parties at home and the election of a new president.Ahead of the dialogue, which is scheduled to begin Tuesday evening, Hezbollah said it remained committed to MP Michel Aoun's candidacy for the presidency and to its general partnership policy.Khalil, the political aide to Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah, is one of three Hezbollah officials taking part in Tuesday's dialogue to be held at Speaker Nabih Berri's residence in Ain al-Tineh.
