An adviser to President Michel Aoun said Sunday that it appeared there was no clear political solution to the dispute over the controversial decree promoting a number of Lebanese Army officers.The controversial decree advances by one year the seniority and rank of over 200 officers who served under Aoun when he was an Army commander in the late 1980s.The decree was signed by Aoun, Prime Minister Saad Hariri and Defense Minister Yaacoub Sarraf, but did not receive the signature of Finance Minister Ali Hasan Khalil – a key political aide to Berri. The speaker maintained that Khalil's signature was required to render the decree legitimate.
