The Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri revealed, on Wednesday, that the government expected to be formed, “may see the light within 4 or 5 days, if the atmosphere remains positive.”
This came during an interview with a student delegation from “Saint Joseph” University (in particular) that Berri held at his home west of Beirut, according to a statement that a copy of it came to Anatolia.
Berri stressed that the government that Saad Hariri was tasked with forming, will see the light in the coming days, “if the positive atmosphere remains as it is now.”
He reiterated that “Lebanon cannot continue if the politicians follow sectarian and confessional standards in their approaches,” and that “the time has come for the Lebanese to belong to his homeland before his sect.”
Berri expressed his fear of “reaching a stage in which mercy may be reached on the Sykes-Picot (1916) agreement, in comparison with the divisive scenarios planned for the region,” he did not explain.
On Thursday, Lebanese President Michel Aoun assigned Hariri to form the new government, following Mustafa Adib’s apology on September 26, for the failure of his mission to form it, following the bombing of the Beirut port on August 4.
Lebanon has been suffering, for months, an economic crisis that is the worst since the end of the civil war (1975-1990), in addition to severe political polarization, in a scene in which the interests of regional and Western countries are clashing.
In another context, the Speaker of Parliament expressed his optimism about the future of Lebanon, “because it is rich in its human energies and has enormous oil wealth in its waters (the Mediterranean).”
He reaffirmed that the negotiations that Lebanon is conducting with Israel in Naqoura “are exclusively for the sake of establishing Lebanon’s rights to invest in its full wealth without an increase or decrease.”
He said, “It is not possible, either soon or far, to accept that the demarcation negotiations lead to normalization with the Israeli enemy, which is being negotiated indirectly under the flag of the United Nations.”
Earlier Wednesday, Israel and Lebanon concluded the second round of maritime border demarcation negotiations, without disclosing details of their course and results.
On October 14, the first round of negotiations on the dispute over a region in the Mediterranean, about 860 square kilometers, was held, known as Zone No. 9, rich in oil and gas, and in January 2016 Beirut announced the launch of its first round of licenses for exploration.
The maritime borders between Lebanon and Israel do not witness military conflicts like the land borders, which are controlled by “Hezbollah” (pro-Iran), and there are tensions from time to time due to what Tel Aviv says are attempts by Hezbollah fighters to breach the borders.
