Bou Saab after meeting Berri: No dialogue before end of the year
Deputy Speaker Elias Bou Saab met Wednesday with Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri in Ain el-Tineh.
After the meeting, Bou Saab said that it is not likely for a dialogue to be held before the end of the year.
He added that time for dialogue and consultations is not indefinite, and that he has sensed from Berri that "there will be more serious work, starting next year."
Bou Saab considered that dialogue is the only way out of the current crisis.
Berri had announced last week that he would turn Thursday’s presidential election session into a dialogue if the blocs agree to such a move, but later called for a regular election session, after the Lebanese Forces said in a statement that they would not attend such a dialogue.
