Turkish, Syrian and Qatari leaders called for a solution to the government crisis in Lebanon following a tripartite summit in Damascus on Monday, Anadolu Agency reported.

The tripartite summit which brought together Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, resulted with a joint statement.

The statement emphasized the significance of finding a solution to the government crisis in Lebanon, within the scope of the good willed efforts initiated by Syria and Saudi Arabia. It also called for measures to prevent the situation from further deteriorating.

The three leaders welcomed the decision of the Lebanese parliament to postpone discussions (to form a new government) until political efforts to re-establish stability in Lebanon becomes more concrete.

Recently, a dispute between political groups in Lebanon over the investigation into the Hariri assassination, resulted with the resignation of 11 ministers from the cabinet.
