The Future Movement and Hezbollah are to hold a new round of talks Wednesday despite renewed tension over the party's role in Syria, political sources said Monday.Wednesday's will be the eighth dialogue session held by senior officials from the Future Movement and Hezbollah since December, focusing mainly on defusing Sunni-Shiite tensions stoked by the 4-year-old war in Syria.Former Prime Minister Fouad Siniora's diatribe against Hezbollah drew scathing verbal attacks from MP Mohammad Raad, head of the party's bloc in Parliament, and other officials, who questioned the benefits of the three-month-old dialogue while Future officials kept up their anti-Hezbollah rhetoric.Responding to Raad's veiled threat to withdraw from the dialogue, MP Samir Jisr, one of three senior Future officials representing the movement in the dialogue with Hezbollah, said: "We hope that MP Raad did not act in a haste and made a mistake in his stance".He said the Future Movement has not been notified that Hezbollah wanted to walk out of the dialogue. Hezbollah MP Nawwaf Musawi said his party is adamant on pursuing dialogue with the Future Movement.
