Progressive Socialist Party chief Walid Jumblatt Thursday said it was important that the White House heard President Michel Aoun's message, after the U.S.'s top diplomat met with Aoun at Baabda Palace.Without expanding on what that message was, Jumblatt said after he too met with Aoun that U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had made "positive remarks" on Lebanon's potential oil reserves during his meeting with the president.Tillerson separately met Aoun, Berri and Prime Minister Saad Hariri during the first few hours of his one-day visit to Beirut Thursday.The proposal, which was presented to top Lebanese leaders by Acting U.S. Assistant Secretary for Near Eastern Affairs David Satterfield last week, was set to be floated by Tillerson in his separate meetings with Aoun, Berri and Hariri, the source told The Daily Star.
