Lebanese House Speaker Nabih Berri received on Saturday the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice President of the European Commission Josep Borrell.
Talks centered on the Lebanese situation with its ramifications and repercussions, particularly the government crisis.
Speaker Berri provided the European delegate with a detailed explanation of his initiative aimed at overcoming the governmental crisis, the stages it has crossed and where it stands today, stressing that “the obstacles that prevent the government’s formation are purely internal.”
Berri also outlined the reform laws endorsed by the Parliament and what is underway in this context, to keep pace with the forthcoming government in its expected reform and rescue mission.
The Lebanese speaker thanked the European Union for its role and efforts, as well as the French initiative in supporting Lebanon out of its crises.
Cable to Imam Khamenei
On a different note, Berri cabled the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei in wake of the Iranian presidential elections.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran is great in creating its steadfastness and prevention in the face of the blockade, and in its steadfastness in supporting and aiding vulnerable peoples and nations,” Berri wrote in the cable.
“The Islamic Republic is also great at making and preserving its options and constitutional deadlines.”
