BEIRUT: Lebanese President Michel Aoun said on Saturday a solution would be found to a political row that is blocking the formation of a new national unity government more than six months after a general election.

"The matter requires bravery and patience to reach the end, but we will find the solution because waiting is a waste of time," a statement from the presidency cited Aoun as saying. Aoun said no effort would be spared to resolve the problem.
