Lebanese rivals gathered for an eleventh round of national dialogue Wednesday aimed at agreeing on solutions to the country's mounting crises, but ended it after less than two hours, making it the shortest session since the talks were launched more than two months ago.Among the prominent figures who attended Wednesday's session were Prime Minister Tammam Salam, Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblatt, Future Bloc chief Fouad Siniora, Change and Reform Bloc MP Ibrahim Kanaan, who attended on behalf of the bloc's leader Michel Aoun, and Marada Movement leader Sleiman Frangieh.Frangieh held a private meeting with Berri before the session, while Jumblatt left before the end of the dialoge for "personal reasons".However, neither Hariri nor Frangieh have acknowledged their meeting.
