The Future bloc denied allegations Thursday that it opposed the inclusion of the resistance clause in the Cabinet's policy statement, rejecting instead the use of arms inside Lebanon, in a sign of a possible compromise over the disputed issue.Rival ministers tasked with drafting the government's policy statement have failed on several occasions to reach a compromise on the issue of the resistance against Israel with the March 14 coalition arguing such a clause would legitimize Hezbollah's arms.The Future bloc's remarks come a day after Speaker Nabih Berri said he would show more flexibility and end the row over the ministerial statement on condition that his rivals do the same first.The National News Agecny said the meeting in AIn el-Tineh discussed developments with regards to the policy statement.
