BEIRUT — Hizbullah said Damascus is ready to meet with one of Syria's harshest critics in Lebanon to open a new page in relations.

A reconciliation between Walid Jumblatt, leader of Lebanon's Druse sect, and Damascus could boost Syria's role in Lebanese politics years after its troops were forced out of the country.

Lebanon's Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah has been mediating between the Syrians and Jumblatt for several months.

A Hizbullah statement released late Monday said Nasrallah informed Jumblatt that Syria "will overcome" what happened in the past and open a new page. It added that Syrian President Bashar Assad will receive Jumblatt in the near future.

The announcement came two days after Jumblatt said his harsh criticism of Syria in the past years was "improper."
