"This government has got to succeed, it has no other option. I am not concerned about the government, but of the government itself. We do not every minister in it to have a cabinet of his own," said Speaker Nabih Berri this Tuesday, reiterating the call to "apply the law against corruption."
"A country that does not apply the law is a hotbed for corruption, chaos and bankruptcy," he stressed.
Pertaining to the situation in the region, Berri said "there is no doubt that there have been many positive developments in the region. In my opinion, though, the region is still on the earthquake line as long as there is no political solution in Syria and Yemen."
Berri's words came during his meeting this Tuesday afternoon with a delegation of the Press Syndicate Council headed by Awni Al-Kaaki.
