House Speaker, Nabih Berri, on Monday received at his Ain Tineh residence US Ambassador to Lebanon, Elizabeth Richard, with talks reportedly touching on most recent developments in Lebanon and the broad region.
Speaker Berri then met with Syria's Ambassador to Lebanon, Ali Abdel Karim Ali, who congratulated him on the recently held legislative elections.
Talks reportedly dwelt on the current situation in Lebanon and the region, notably Syria's successful accomplishments in the face of terrorism.
This afternoon, Berri met with former Prime Minister, Tammam Salam, who congratulated the Speaker on the recently held legislative elections, saying "such a long awaited constitutional deadline strengthens our democratic system and thus our state."
Salam called for the formation of an effective national accord government, calling on all the political forces to rise above narrow calculations in the Cabinet formation process.
"National accord is the key to Lebanon's continuity and immunity," Salam corroborated.
