Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblatt expressed fear Thursday that the situation in Lebanon will deteriorate further if Prime Minister Tammam Salam's government collapses.Jumblatt revealed that he will kickstart serious consultations with Speaker Nabih Berri to help ease tensions.Salam has rejected such a demand, saying it could allow any party to easily hinder the Cabinet's work.A source from a ministerial committee tasked with following up on the trash crisis in Beirut and Mount Lebanon, which is formed of eight ministers from various political parties, said that Jumblatt is ready to bear the disposal of 2,000 tons per day in Daher al-Baidar if the district of Kesrouan and Lebanon's Metn open dumps for the remaining 500 tons.
