Berri, interlocutors tackle current situation

House Speaker, Nabih Berri, welcomed on Tuesday at his Ain al-Tineh residence a delegation of "Muslim Scholars" Gathering, with whom he discussed the current situation.

Speaking in the name of the delegation, Judge Sheikh Ahmed al-Amine said that they broached with the Speaker an array of local, regional and cultural matters.

The delegation congratulated the Speaker on his election as head of the Parliament, and called for a swift government formation to address standing socio-economic predicaments.

Muslim Scholars also called for including the tripartite equation "army, people and resistance" in the new government's ministerial statement, since as the Sheikh said "such an equation has proven its effectiveness in protecting Lebanon from the Zionists' greed."

The delegation also underlined the importance of facilitating the return of displaced Syrians to safe areas in their homeland through coordination between the Lebanese and Syrian governments.

On the other hand, Speaker Berri met with a delegation of Beirut and Sahel Conference Follow-up Committee, led by Kamal Shatila, who stressed the need for the implementation of the Constitution.

Shatila hoped that Berri would succeed in his efforts to reach a balanced government embodying national entente.
