BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:10 P.M.) – The Lebanese Speaker of Parliament, Nabih Berri, told the Al-Intichar newspaper on Sunday that Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s stance on restoring ties with Syria is ‘unrealistic.’

“This is unrealistic and unhelpful,” the veteran politician told Al-Intichar in response to Hariri’s refusal to restore ties with Syria.

According to Berri, Lebanon has asked Syria to help provide their country with electricity.

Furthermore, Berri said that the Syrian government is working with the Lebanese authorities to return the refugees currently living across Lebanon.

“The Syrian government is especially concerned with the return of displaced Syrians to their country. These issues would not have been solved without coordination between Lebanon and Syria,” Berri added.

High time for Lebanon to get rid from ANY foreign interferences, especially the Iranian one…

In order to survive in his important position as long as he has — in reality longer than any other 20th century Lebanese — sharp intelligence, and abilities for both manipulation and cooperation are needed. He has put loyal partners in important positions, and has not yet been stabbed in the back. Berri’s unpopularity with Shi’is is one of the reasons for the success of… Read more »

Hariri is obviously the stooge for an American/Saudi take-over of the Lebanon.
