Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora urged Hizbullah on Thursday to engage in dialogue as a means to resolve power-sharing struggles in the country. "Dialogue, accepting one another and drawing on our constitutional institutions are the only ways to resolve Lebanon's problems," said Saniora, in Jordan on a tour of Arab states ahead of a January 25 international donors' conference in Paris aimed at securing financial aid for Lebanon's struggling post-war economy. The Shi'ite Hizbullah movement and its allies have been holding street protests for weeks, trying to pressure Saniora's government to agree to a national unity government that would give the opposition veto power on major decisions. Referring to the Hizbullah-led protests, Saniora said, "All these practices will lead to absolutely nothing."
