However, the State Department's announcement of the Geneva meeting coincided with Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah's speech Friday, in which he advised the Lebanese not to count on a Saudi-Iranian deal to save them from presidential vacuum.Despite appearances, Hezbollah has still not given up on running Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun for president, the sources said.Berri reportedly advised Aoun to get close to MP Walid Jumblatt, who has rightfully earned the reputation of kingmaker, and Aoun agreed to approach Jumblatt and solicit his support.Also, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's announcement that his country neither supports nor opposes any presidential candidate has helped fuel internal negotiations, the sources said.
