The Higher Islamic Council called all political parties to respond to Hariri's "stretched hand" policy. The council asked the various political parties to fortify mutual trust and to put national interest ahead of all other interests.

A statement issued after its weekly meeting Saturday, headed by Mufti of Lebanon Sheikh Mohamed Rashid Qabbani, said the council discussed some "condemned" stances and sayings aiming at jeopardizing national unity and undermining the Taef accord.

The statement added that such acts may lead to threatening the Lebanese Constitution that affirmed the balance between Muslims and Christians and established the roots of stability.

The council called the leaders of Lebanon to fully abide by the Taef accord and to work on implementing it to the fullest which leads to the welfare of Lebanon and its citizens.

On the other hand, the council urged the speeding up of investigations with the Islamic detainees which should lead to releasing the innocents and punishing those who undermine security and stability.
