Speaker Nabih Berri, speaking on the eve of a new national dialogue session set to tackle the garbage crisis, said Tuesday he had no fears that the government would collapse over the thorny issue."Assistance to the Lebanese armed forces and to other legitimate state institutions is essential to help diminish the role of Hezbollah and its foreign patrons".Addressing visitors at his Ain al-Tineh residence, Berri said premier Tammam Salam could call for a Cabinet session anytime he wanted. Berri said Salam was waiting for rival political parties to reach a deal on where to establish sanitary landfills before he calls for a Cabinet session to approve the waste plan. Salam has hinted several times that he would resign or stop performing his duties if no solution for the trash crisis was reached.As for the garbage crisis, the bloc stressed that the Cabinet was fully able to resolve the crisis.MP Michel Aoun's Change and Reform bloc pondered the reasons behind the Cabinet's inability to resolve the crisis.
