The question of how to “unify the Lebanese position on the crisis of displaced Syrians,” which continues to weigh heavily on the Lebanese landscape, was at the heart of discussions between a Hezbollah delegation and the former President of the Progressive Socialist Party (PSP), Walid Joumblatt. Joumblatt had received the delegation at Clemenceau on Thursday.

Joumblatt took advantage of the meeting to inform the Hezbollah delegation that “the PSP has prepared a document on the issue of displaced persons, including practical ideas, and will submit it this coming week to all political parties.”

The meeting also discussed the latest political developments on the local and regional scene, in particular, the ongoing conflict in south Lebanon between Hezbollah and Israel since October 8, 2023.

The Hezbollah delegation included Hussein al-Khalil, Political Assistant to the Secretary General of Hezbollah, and Wafiq Safa, Head of Liaison and Coordination for the Shiite party. On the PSP side, MPs Wael Abou Faour and Hadi Abou el-Hosn were present.
