Following the recent developments on the Israeli-Syrian track, Lebanese politicians are divided regarding the possibility of holding peace talks with Israel.
Most of the Lebanese politicians have rejected the possibility of holding direct talks with Israel.
"We hope peace is achieved between Syria and Israeli, but for our part we do not want to engage in direct negotiations between Lebanon and Israel, which are against our national interests," Al-Mustaqbal (The Future) movement leader, Sa'ad A-Din Al-Hariri, said on Tuesday according to the Lebanese Daily Star.
Hizbullah for its part has rejected any kind of negotiations with Israel - direct or indirect.
"There is no need for negotiations as long as our rights are clearâ€¦ Israel is the aggressor and the occupier and we are not willing to compromise any of our rights," the Hizbullah-affiliated minister, Muhammad Fneish, told reporters.
On the other hand, Michel 'Aoun, leader of the Free Patriotic Movement, said over the weekend that he did not mind direct negotiations between the two countries, as long as Syria sat at the negotiating table as a third party.
'Aoun has recently returned from Damascus, where he visited Syrian President Bashar Al-Asad after long years of fierce disputes. 'Aoun is the former commander of the Lebanese military, who has also served as premier and acting president of the country.
