After meeting Jumblat, Bkerki delegation meets Berri in Ain el-Tineh


Bishop Paul Abdel Sater and bishop Maroun Ammar met Friday in Ain el-Tineh with Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri, on behalf of Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi.

Abdel Sater and Ammar had met Thursday with outgoing Progressive Socialist party leader Walid Jumblat and Abdel Sater had earlier met with Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.

After a trip last week to Paris and to the Vatican, al-Rahi announced that France and the Vatican had asked him to talk to all of the country’s “components” regarding the presidential file.

“We will talk to everyone without exception, even to Hezbollah,” al-Rahi said.

Al-Rahi had tried several times to send a delegation to meet Berri but his previous attempts had failed, MTV said, as Berri was dismayed that al-Rahi reportedly accused him of not wanting to call for a session to elect a president.
