As long as the U.S.-Iran talks continue without settlement negotiations, the Lebanese will witness instability until a political settlement is reached, political sources told The Daily Star.The sources said Lebanon comes in fourth as far as regional and international priorities go, after the conflicts in Yemen, Syria and Iraq. Lebanese issues, in particular the presidential void, will remain unsolved until other regional issues take a positive turn. The sources said a presidential election won't be held anytime soon, but a slim possibility of holding an election exists if a U.S.-Iran nuclear deal is reached by June. Other issues, like forming a new government and altering the hotly debated electoral law, relate naturally to the success of a presidential election. The sources predicted the next few weeks in Lebanon would be "delicate" and would remain this way until June, if the nuclear deal goes on the right track.
