BEIRUT: Syrian Social Nationalist Party leader Asaad Hardan warned Sunday against the serious and grave political crisis brewing in Lebanon and called for political leaders to have a dialogue.
“The political leaders have a real chance to solve the current political impasse by reconvening the dialogue committee to discuss what is happening in the country,” Hardan said in his speech during a dinner to mark the birthday of SSNP’s founder Antoun Saadeh.
“Everyone should know that Lebanon is facing a dangerous and grave crisis and if this crisis blows up no one will gain anything,” he added.
Hardan also called for reaching an agreement on a non-sectarian electoral law, stressing the need to meet the economic demands of citizens, notably referring to the pay hikes.
“This month Syria will end its second year in its legendary confrontation against the conspiracies that conspire against its role and position [as the leader of the Syrian people],” said Hardan, a staunch ally of the Syrian regime.
“The terrorism in Syria has no reform ideas or development programs. It aims only at destroying Syria’s power and its infrastructure,” he said, referring to the Syrian rebels.
