March 14 leaders Monday moved to contain sharp differences between the coalition's factions as they marked the alliance's 11th anniversary.March 14 Secretary-General Fares Soueid called for unity to salvage the country, acknowledging several disputes inside the coalition."The current developments are the fruit of an exclusion policy conducted by several parties ... But I will exert efforts to assume my responsibilities to mend the gaps" between the March 14 parties.He warned that any cracks that hit the country's unity would tear it down, underlining that the coalition will hold onto the Taif Accord and Lebanese Constitution.
