Berri Hails al-Rahi’s 'Comprehensive National Stance'

Dispatched by Speaker Nabih Berri, MP Anwar al-Khalil of the Development and Liberation bloc held talks Wednesday with Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi, a few hours after a landmark Maronite summit in Bkirki.

“Speaker Nabih Berri asked me to relay his appreciation to His Eminence Patriarch al-Rah for this comprehensive and complete national stance that pays attention to the critical situation that Lebanon is going through, and for those good words that he heard during the opening of Bkirki’s meeting today,” al-Khalil said after meeting al-Rahi in Bkirki.

“I expressed to His Eminence our appreciation of what he is doing… And as His Eminence said, we should all read in our constitution and in the Taef Accord and not in other books and constitutions,” the envoy added.
