Speaking publicly for the first time since Hizbullah toppled the Lebanon's ruling coalition on Wednesday, the country's caretaker Prime Minister Saad Hariri on Friday said that "there is no alternative for all of us to dialogue, and no side in Lebanon will be able to eliminate the other," Reuters reported.

Hariri did not specify whether he would once again seek the position of prime minister, which Hizbullah has opposed, but did say that he would work with Lebanese President Michel Suleiman in order to help form a new government, according to the report.

"I will stick to my commitment to open up to cooperation with the president and all leaderships on the basis of continuous dialogue and reaching logical solutions for our common issues, no matter how complicated it is," the caretaker prime minister said, Reuters reported.
