Lebanon's rival leaders will sit for a third round of dialogue Tuesday, with Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun likely to boycott the all-embracing talks for a second time.FPM parliamentary sources said that Aoun would likely boycott Tuesday's session, noting that Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil would represent the group in the talks.Aoun will only attend when he senses that dialogue participants are serious about resolving thorny issues, the sources said. However, parliamentary sources from the Kataeb Party said they believed failure to reach an agreement to end the presidential deadlock, the first item on the dialogue agenda, would prevent the talks from having the desirable outcome.Raad said that his party was ready to wait for a thousand years to elect a strong Christian president, in reference to Aoun, the group's candidate.
