BEIRUT - All the problems preventing the formation of a new Lebanese national unity government have been resolved, a pro-Hezbollah lawmaker at the heart of a dispute over cabinet posts said on Tuesday.
"All the problems have been solved and there is absolutely no problem," Abdel Rahim Mrad, the MP, said in a televised news conference after a meeting with a top security official who is mediating a resolution of the final dispute over Sunni representation in the cabinet.
Speaking alongside Mrad, Major General Abbas Ibrahim, the security official, said he did not expect any obstacles to the government formation.
