As Hezbollah's dialogue with the Future Movement looks to be moving on the right track and has made "significant progress," according to a senior political source, the party – along with its allies – is waging a crucial military campaign to restore the control of Syrian President Bashar Assad on the southern strip of his country.In the meantime, the battle in southern Syria has gained so much significance, the source noted, adding that for the first time, Iran is openly engaged in the fight.The source, however, argues that the war in Syria will be a very long and protracted one unless the United States decides to move toward a solution.For the source, ISIS in its current form was not a viable one. Who funded the formation of ISIS was a key question, according to the source. The last Future Movement-Hezbollah dialogue session was fruitful, the source said.The source said that while the Future-Hezbollah talks would not lead to the election of a new president; dialogue would pave the way for the right conditions to elect one. The source disclosed that Aoun was highly optimistic about his election prospects.
