Prime Minister Tammam Salam believes a deal settling the Iranian nuclear dispute could help pave the way towards ending the political deadlock that has left his country without a president since May.Salam said resolving Lebanon's crisis would first require defusing regional tensions, possibly starting with a deal around Iran's nuclear program, followed by an eventual resolution of Syria's war.Salam, who is Sunni as required by Lebanon's constitution, said it was unclear how many Sunni militants were in the country but said attacks could continue.Salam's own government was formed in February after nearly a year of deadlock was ended by what was widely seen as a deal between Iran and Saudi Arabia, two regional backers of Lebanon's political factions.
