“Everyone must know the country has run out of time,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech. He added that there were “serious, collective efforts” in recent days to ease a political standoff that has obstructed Cabinet talks for months.

He also said that all parties agree that the main solution is “the formation of the government.”

“It’s about time we sought real solutions for the problems,” he added.

Nasrallah also quipped that he would avoid talking about Saudi Arabia in his speech in order “not to be accused of obstructing the government’s formation.”

“We must put all things aside and we must quickly resolve the crisis,” he urged.
