BEIRUT - Lebanon's President Michel Aoun on Tuesday told Arab states that dealing with Lebanon required wisdom otherwise the country would be pushed "towards the fire."

Referring to this month's sudden resignation of Prime Minister Saad Hariri, Aoun said the "last governmental crisis" had "passed" but it was not a trivial issue. Aoun spoke in a televised speech on the eve of the country's independence day celebrations.
