The delegation is expected to hold talks with the head of the unconstitutional government’s Prime Minister Fouad Siniora, Speaker Nabih Berri, army chief Gen. Michel Suleiman, Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun, Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt and Future Movement leader MP Saad Hariri.

The Lebanese daily An-Nahar said the delegation will start talks by meeting with Berri at his Beirut mansion in Ain el-Tineh. It added that Berri will stress to the committee the need for the government to revoke its decisions, which caused a deterioration in the security situation lately, before discussing details about the implementation of the Arab League initiative. Latest news from Presstv reported that the anti- resistance decision have been revoke

In the meantime, Saniora called on his ministerial team to hold a meeting on. Wednesday, amid uncertainty about whether they will revoke their controversial decisions or not. For its part the US administration continued to provide moral support to Saniora's collapsing bloc and stay on as long as possible. Hezbollah had issued a statement condemning Hariri's sectarian provocation. There are reports of Saudi's-Israeli collaboration to move Israeli troops in a threatening manner towards Lebanon border, if the 'civil war' continued.

Washington has apparently backed down from their strong backing on Saniora and his bloc with US Undersecretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, David Welch only urging his allies in Lebanon to be solid and strong to improve the conditions of the internal settlement in their favour. US President George W. Bush had earlier said that the only solution for Lebanon was a diplomatic solution, stressing that the destroyer USS Cole is in the Mediterranean on exercise. In previous warnings, Bush used to say that his destroyers have deployed off the Lebanese coast to protect Fouad Saniora and his government.
