The majority March 14 coalition expressed pessimism over an imminent formation of a government and believed a Cabinet deal is not possible unless Iran's and Syria's demands at the regional level were met. 

"The majority rules out that Iran would let go of the Lebanese government before a deal on its nuclear file has matured," one source told pan-Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat.

Meanwhile, no breakthrough has been reported in Cabinet talks as the key obstacle continued to revolve around the telecoms ministry.

Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri and Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun will soon hold a meeting to "remove the obstacles preventing the birth of the government," FPM MP Salim Salhab told the Voice of Lebanon radio station Friday.
