Berri welcomes Greek president, stresses importance of sound budget to restore national stability

Speaker of the House, Nabih Berri, on Thursday welcomed at his Ein Teeneh residence Greek President, Prokopios Pavlopoulos, who is currently on a two-day official visit to Lebanon with an accompanying delegation.

Talks reportedly touched on bilateral relations, maritime borders, Syrian refugees, as well as the situation in Lebanon and the region.

In the wake of the meeting, Berri said that agreement had been set on holding a tripartite meeting between Lebanon, Greece, and Cyprus to discuss matters related to the maritime border.

On the other hand, Berri said that Lebanon underwent a crucial month during which some major measures would be taken, with the state budget at the forefront.

"It is of great importance to specify our future plans in the new budget to restore national stability," Berri said.

"The electricity plan is on the right track, yet insufficient," he added.
