Report: Berri fears foreign forces will sway hesitant MPs on Azour


The parties of the five-nation gathering on Lebanon might “change their stances” on the Lebanese presidential file and Jihad Azour’s supporters are saying that the U.S. stance will be in their favor, a media report said on Monday.

“Washington will find a way to convince Riyadh to intervene in his (Azour’s) favor and (Speaker Nabih) Berri has expressed concerns over that in his meetings with his visitors,” informed sources told al-Akhbar newspaper.

Berri has “received information about intentions by regional and international forces to interfere with the hesitant MPs in order to convince them to vote for Azour,” the sources added.
