center of a war, a power struggle and basically mr. hariri has been used as a puppet by the saudis. >> i wouldn't say as a pup bet, but the conflict between saudi arabia and iran created a could he lateral damage for lebanon. we had previously many cabinets resigning and prime ministers resigning. what triggered some fear is the fact this resignation is that this happened from outside of lebanon. we hope with the prime minister coming back to lebanon and have talks, we hope things will get to normality we don't see a short end to the crisis. >> do you think that a war can be avoided at this point and the economic costs, the human costs, more importantly, can come with it can something like 2006 be avoided? >> i believe so. i don't think we are in a situation where there will be a war on lebanon lebanon hosts 1 million and a half syrian refugees and there is no point be in having a war that would create economic problems that are already in a country that has the burden of a million and a half syrians and create another humanitarian situation that europe will have to cope with, i believe.
