Will First Presidency exert any serious internal endeavor?

Baabda Palace sources informed LBCI, that “the First Presidency is not intending to make any serious internal endeavor regarding the curent crisis, whether at the level of the government meeting, or the developments in the relationship with Saudi Arabia and the Gulf.”
In response to a question, the sources pointed out that “the Patriarchal endeavor by the Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Mar Beshara Boutros Al-Rahi, can be talked about, and about its results, if we see Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri in the patriarchal edifice,” confirming the First Presidency’s refusal, to swap the Tayoune file for the Beirut port explosion file.
The channel pointed out that “eyes are on Qatar’s endeavor, as it is “cooked on a low heat”, at least between Qatar and the Saudi-Gulf side.”
