Berri meets with US Congress delegation

Parliament Speaker, Nabih Berri, on Wednesday received a delegation of the US Congress, chaired by Chairman of the Subcommittee on Middle East Affairs, Senator Chris Murphy, in the presence of US Ambassador to Lebanon, Dorothy Shea.

Discussions reportedly touched on the general situation in Lebanon and the broad region.

Speaker Berri expressed hope that the government will be formed in the nearest future, stressing commitment to holding parliamentary elections on time.

Berri also stressed before the US delegation the necessity that Lebanon obtains exceptions that guarantee the freedom of import and export movement across its land borders with sisterly Syria, in order to help it address many of the pressing social and daily living crises impacting the Lebanese people.
