Leader of the Amal Movement, Nabih Berri, attending a meeting 'Ayn Tineh

BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 A.M.) – Lebanon has asked Syria to supply their country with electricity in order to end their constant disruptions, Lebanese Speaker of Parliament Nabih Berri told Al-Intichar newspaper on Sunday.

The veteran politician said that his country and Syria are currently negotiating the supply of electricity to the residents of Lebanon.

Berri said that this is one of the reasons that it is important to maintain diplomatic ties with the Syrian government, despite protests from the March 14th political bloc.

In particular, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri said that he will not form a government if diplomatic ties with Damascus are normalized.

Hariri and his political party, the Future Movement (var. Tayyar Al-Mustaqbal), have been opposed to any diplomatic relations with Syria, as they view Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad as an obstacle to peace in the region.

The US and their Arab allies are the obstacle to peace in Syria.
Hariri and his Future Movement have sold their souls to these warmongers.

I don’t agree. The obstacles are 3 : – Qatar – Turkey – Iran US and KSA have CLEARLY backed out from supporting the Qatari pipeline and reels, actually, Qatar is now even isolated from GCC and… Even the UK is pulling the plug (and strangely, Qatar can’t find a loan to by the 24 EF-2000 Typhoons while KSA is likely to order 78 more to replace ageing Tornados, how surprising! Note that Qatari economy is flat-lining due to GCC sanctions!). Didn’t you noticed that, in a typical Mid-East pattern, alliances switched? Now you have a Qatar-Iran-Turkey axis… In fact,… Read more »
