BERRI MEETS JAPANESE AMBASSADOR, UN’S KUBIS, “STRONG REPUBLIC” BLOC DELEGATION

House Speaker, Nabih Berri, met this Wednesday at his Ain el-Tineh residence with Japanese Ambassador to Lebanon, Takeshi Okubo, with whom he discussed the general situation in Lebanon and the broad region, as well as the bilateral relations between the two countries.

Speaker Berri also met with UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon, Jan Kubis, with talks reportedly touching on the latest developments.

This afternoon, Berri received a delegation from the “Strong Republic” bloc, which included MPs Ziad Hawat and Antoine Habchi.

On emerging, MP Hawat said that they briefed the Speaker on what had happened in Lassa, underlining Jbeil district’s keenness on national coexistence.

MP Hawat stressed the importance of the application of law in this regard, underlining that the issue is agro developmental rather than confessional or sectarian.

On the other hand, Berri received a congratulatory cable from Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, on the occasion of the Eid El Fitr.

Berri received similar congratulatory cables from the Syrian Speaker of the People’s Council, Hammouda Al-Sabbagh, and Chairman of the Jordanian Senate, Faisal Akef Al-Fayez.
