A joint proposal by Speaker Nabih Berri and MP Walid Jumblatt to end the deadlock over the resistance clause raised hopes that Cabinet policy statement could be finalized Tuesday.Speaking to The Daily Star, sources close to Berri said that the proposed formula stemmed from the statement made by Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil during the meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Cairo Sunday. Bassil made his statement after coordinating with President Michel Sleiman and Prime Minister Tammam Salam.The sources said that Berri and Jumblatt, who heads the Progressive Socialist Party, worked on and expanded Bassil's clause.Future Movement MP Jamal Jarrah denied that an agreement had been reached on adopting Bassil's statement in the Cabinet's policy statement.In case an agreement is not reached over the policy statement, the issue will be referred to the Cabinet, Kheir quoted Salam as saying.
