Turkey and Qatar must join efforts to secure the release of the Lebanese captives kidnapped by ISIS and Nusra Front, said Prime Minister Tammam Salam, saying he would support a negotiated deal.According to an article published by Al-Hayat Sunday, Salam said he would support negotiating a deal with the militants to find a solution to the hostage crisis, but called for keeping the matter "away from competition and political bidding". The prime minister disclosed that he had asked Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to maximize his efforts regarding the hostage crisis and received Erdogan's assurances he would do so. Abu Faour confirmed that his party supports exchanging detainees from Roumieh Prison for the captives; however, he said ministers have not yet discussed the matter.
