Berri Compares Lebanon to Atom: If Split, Region Will Explode

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Speaker Nabih Berri warned on Wednesday against plans to fragment the region, including Lebanon.

He said during his weekly meeting with lawmakers at his Ain el-Tineh residence: “Lebanon is like the atom. If it is split, then it will explode, as will the region around it.”

In addition, he noted that a deal between the United States and Iran over the Islamic republic's nuclear program will have repercussions on the region.

The speaker therefore called on the Lebanese to demonstrate more unity to fortify the country.

Berri also hoped that government work would resume “because we are in need of tackling several problems and files.”

A cabinet session has been scheduled for Thursday.

Addressing the dialogue between the Mustaqbal Movement and Hizbullah, the speaker said: “The talks and the outcomes they are producing have become a factor in easing tensions in Lebanon.”

The two sides had held the seventh round of their dialogue on Monday.

They announced, after meeting at Ain el-Tineh, that they made "serious progress" regarding the security and political issues in Lebanon.

Dialogue between the two parties had kicked off on December 23, 2014.

Who gave you this supreme authority to tell other posters what nation they're from & what language they speak?

hold on a moment, this is the same person who cries when others suspect him of being a saudi..ISis lover.

Firstly you snort coke not sniff..but we'll allow the sniffing for you.

secondly I care less about victories..what I post is facts.

HA's actions were indeed to safeguard Lebanon from the monsters you call friends(ISis) most around the world are admitting as much slowly but surely.
Only ISis lovers like you don;t agree.

move along your propaganda is getting old & stale.
look what happen to Israel yester because its leader repeated the same old propaganda far you can push a stale old piece of propaganda.

Allow me to add the following to your above comment. I think airstrikes are not enough and I strongly support boots on the ground to deal a decisive and final blow to ISIS

the hypocrisy of M8 is that Lebanon will split if people do not obey hezbollah and its agenda... they do not care about Lebanon, all they care about is hezbollah....
like cowards they prefer to hide between the legs of those who have military power even if it brings chaos...

Disgusting comments by isis supporters. The only comforting thing about you two is I know you are neither Lebanese nor Arabs, but hasbara goons paid to inspire hatred and promote sectarianism.
You're the tools of those that Berri mentioned, who want to make the region explode.
