The media office of Parliament Speaker, Nabih Berri, issued on Friday the following statement:
"To clarify what was mentioned in the statement of the economic summit Organizing Committee, specifically on the subject of inviting Libya to the summit and not Syria, the media office of Speaker Nabih Berri stresses that these information are fabricated and completely groundless.
(...) On the contrary, the Minister of Finance has visited the President upon the request of Speaker Berri to protest the invitations addressed to the Libyans. That will be all."
