Cabinet paralysis is the last thing Lebanon needs, Egyptian Ambassador to Lebanon Mohammad Badreddine Zayed said Friday, warning that the government crisis could spin out of control.Zayed said Egypt has been making efforts recently to support dialogue between all Lebanese groups to solve the Cabinet crisis.In the past weeks, Zayed met Speaker Nabih Berri, Prime Minister Tammam Salam, Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun, head of the Progressive Socialist Party Walid Jumblatt and numerous ministers.Zayed said that Cabinet paralysis would only add to the sufferings of the Lebanese. It would also hinder the state's ability to address more urgent challenges, Zayed said. Commenting on the presidential vacuum, now in its second year, Zayed said Egypt did not back any specific presidential candidate.Asked about the party's controversial military role in Syria, Zayed said his country does not interfere in internal Lebanese affairs.Separately, Zayed promised that the Suez Canal and all Egyptian ports would be open for the Lebanese exports.
