Berri tackles overall situation with Hariri, Jarrah, Chidiac, Kubis

House Speaker, Nabih Berri, on Monday met at his Ain Tineh residence with Prime Minister Saad Hariri, with whom he discussed most recent developments and the government situation.

Following the one-hour meeting, Premier Hariri gave no statement to media representatives.

Earlier, Speaker Berri received Minister of State for Administrative Affairs, Dr, May Chidiac, with talks reportedly touching on the general situation and relevant ministerial affairs.

"This is my first visit to Ain Tineh since my assumption of my ministerial portfolio," Minister Chidiac said, adding that they held a tour d'horizon over hour issues and ministerial affairs.

Chidiac said Speaker Berri voiced his absolute support for all the issues and tasks entrusted upon the Ministry with regard to the anti-corruption strategy and the digital transformation strategy.

The Minister also confirmed support for the implementation of the ministerial mechanism approved in 2010 on appointments in key first-grade public posts.

Chidiac stressed that Speaker Berri always offers positive solutions to standing issues, anticipating a near end to the current deadlock.

On the other hand, Berri met with Information Minister, Jamal Al Jarrah, with whom he discussed the Country's most recent developments and issues pertaining to the Ministry.

Earlier, Berri met with the United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon, Jan Kubis.

Among Speaker Berri's itinerant visitors for today had been Dr. Nayla Kmeir Obeid, on top of a delegation from the International Chamber of Commerce.

Berri congratulated Obeid on her election as member of the Executive Board of the International Chamber of Commerce, saying "her election is an honor for all Lebanon and underscores the substantial national need to engage women in all aspects of the state and society's life, especially at the economic level."
