Speaker Nabih Berri received on Friday an invitation to visit Saudi Arabia, but he is unlikely to head to the kingdom “any time soon”, reported al-Joumhouria newspaper on Friday.
At the moment, the speaker does not have any trips on his agenda, except two to Iran and one to Iraq.
He is scheduled to travel to Iraq at the end of December to attend the conference of the union of Islamic parliaments, revealed al-Joumhouria.
Saudi Ambassador Ali Awadh Asiri, who had delivered the invitation to Berri on Thursday, told al-Mustaqbal daily Friday that the speaker “is a figure of balance and moderation” in Lebanon.
He said that Berri pledged to travel to the kingdom.
The visit will serve as an opportunity for the speaker to meet wit the Saudi leadership, explained the ambassador.
