Berri tackles developments with interlocutors, follows up on Zahrani fire

Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri welcomed  on Monday at the second presidential headquarters in Ain El-Tineh, Minister of Justice, Henry Khoury, who paid him a protocol visit.

Speaker Berri also broached the general situation and the latest political developments with former Prime Minister, Fouad Siniora.

Later during the day, Berri had an audience with former Minister of Information, Dr. Manal Abdel Samad.

Separately, Speaker Berri discussed the country’s political, economic, and living conditions with Mr. Tawfiq Sultan.

On the other hand, Berri received a cable from the Sultan of Oman, Haitham bin Tariq, in which he thanked him for his condolences on the victims of Cyclone Shaheen, which had hit several regions of the Sultanate of Oman.

On a different level, Berri followed up with competent authorities on the fire that broke out on Monday morning in one of the Zahrani oil installations’ fuel tanks.

Berri commended the courage of the Lebanese Civil Defense, fire brigades, the army, the Lebanese security forces, and the scout associations in putting out the fire.

“It is time to implement the law; the one that does justice to those soldiers who risk their lives putting out fires across the homeland,” Berri said.
