Jumblatt can’t wait to visit Syria


Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt on Thursday said that he is  few steps away from Damascus and revealed that Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah continues with his  effort in paving the way for the visit

Last week Jumblatt said his planned trip to Syria is 75 % complete , so he  must be inching closer.

In an interview with Al-Manar TV  he also voiced his support for forming a committee to look into the issue of administrative appointments as suggested by president Suleiman

“This committee has to be neutral, formed from experts, and to take into consideration that the good elements in administration should be given priority,” said Jumblatt
