Speaker of the House, Nabih Berri, conferred Saturday with State Minister for Foreign Trade Affairs, Hassan Murad, on the general prevailing situation and relevant governmental issues.
On emerging, Murad said: "I thanked Speaker Berri for his confidence and expressed my high appreciation for his national and parliamentary role. It was an acquaintance encounter and we deliberated over all prevailing conditions."
Berri later met with Minister of State for Displaced Affairs, Saleh al-Gharib, who said after the meeting: "I was honored to visit Speaker Berri, who denotes a national reference and a great national guarantee."
He added: "I briefed the Speaker on the nature of my visit to Syria and listened to his observations on the file of the displaced which will be taken into account, God willing. Speaker Berri stressed that this dossier should be neutralized from politics because of its great implications on the Lebanese situation."
The House Speaker also met today with the Ambassador of Kazakhstan who handed him an invitation from the Head of the Kazakhstan Parliament, the Head of the State Duma of Russia and the South Korean House Speaker to visit Astana and participate in the Asian and European Parliament Speakers Conference on "Dialogue, Trust and Partnership" scheduled to take place late September 2019.
