Berri meets MP Jumblatt, Army Commander

Speaker of the House, Nabih Berri, on Wednesday received MP Taymor Jumblatt and former Minister Ghazi Aridi.

Discussions reportedly touched on the current situation and the outcome of the recent visit of Democratic Gathering leader, Walid Jumblatt, to Saudi Arabia, and the impending government formation.

This afternoon, Speaker Berri met with Army Commander General Joseph Aoun and Intelligence chief Major General Antoine Mansour, with talks reportedly touching on the security situation.

On the other hand, Berri received a cable from US President Donald Trump, well-wishing him on Eid al-Fitr. Berri received a similar cable from Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

In a statement issued by Berri’s Media Bureau, he extended well-wishes to the Lebanese on Eid al-Fitr. However, he apologized for not being able to receive congratulatory visits on the occasion.
