Labor Minister Boutros Harb told the Voice of Lebanon radio station on Thursday that he requested President Michel Sleiman and Prime Minister Saad Hariri to launch a dialogue with Speaker Nabih Berri on his call to form a committee to eliminate political sectarianism. He said that such a discussion would help avoid domestic division.

As-Safir newspaper also reported on Thursday that Harb asked Berri before Wednesday’s cabinet session “to withdraw his proposal to forming a committee to abolish political sectarianism, because it is a contentious issue.”
