Arab League chief Amr Moussa reported progress in his mediation to resolve Lebanon's political crisis, but said Thursday that more talks were required. Moussa told a news conference that he might have to return to Beirut to continue his discussions with government and opposition leaders to reach an agreement on a package. He said the parties had agreed on a Cabinet of national unity, which would include opposition minority and majority members, but they wanted to discuss "guarantees" to make it work. The formula agreed would give the anti-Syrian coalition less than two-thirds majority of the Cabinet and it would leave the opposition short of their demand for a veto-wielding one third. A neutral Cabinet minister would hold the balance.
