Berri : We’re in full harmony with Hezbollah on all issues

berri larijaniLebanon Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri told Iran’s Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei whom he met during his trip to Tehran that he and Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah are in full harmony on all issues, according to a report by Hezbollah’s Al Manar website.

As-Safir newspaper reported that Khamenei was extremely pleased with Berri and told him: “You are succeeding because you are united. The steadfastness of Iran, the resistance and opposition played a decisive role in the results achieved in the nuclear issue. We triumphed and we will achieve more victories.”

As Safir did not elaborate why khamenei thought the resistance played a decisive role in the negotiation on the Iranian nuclear deal.

Berri who is in Iran on an official visit arrived in Tehran on Sunday. On Monday he met with with Khamanei, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani and President Hassan Rouhani.

During the talks, Berri brought up the subject of Lebanese Imam Sayyed Moussa al Sadr, founder of the Amal Movement who along with his two companions, Sheikh Mohammad Yacoub and journalist Abbas Badreddine went missing in Libya on August 1978 , and expressed hope that Iran would help in the case.

During a speech on Aug. 31 to mark 35 years since Sadr’s disappearance, Berri said Libyan authorities were procrastinating in the case.

He said that although the Amal Movement, which he heads, had backed the Libyan uprising against Gaddafi from the first moment, the new Libyan authorities were not interrogating Libyan officials they arrested after the fall of the regime in order to determine the whereabouts of Sadr and his two companions.

On Tuesday, he met with former Iranian President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and other Iranian officials.

National News Agency reported that Berri called for repairing ties between the Islamic Republic and Arab neighbors, during his meeting with Rafsanjani , an ally of president Rouhani .

During his meeting with President Rouhani the talks focused on the current regional and international situations and the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers. Rouhani told Berri he hoped the visit will “contribute to enhancing ties between the two countries,” underlining Iran’s keenness on Lebanon, according to the National News agency.

    In the name of whom you are talking Mr. Berri when you say: “We are in Harmony with HA on all issues” ?
    You went to Iran on your own representing yourself and not the Lebanese government. Whatever you say you represent only yourself, Amal and HA. You do not represent any Lebanese Christian, Sunni or Druze and some Shiaa. Hopefully we will get rid of you soon inchallah !

    what happened to Imam Moussa Al Sadr was in full knowledge of the Iranian regime and HA also. They wanted him dead because he was not going their ways.. Besides that leaves room for HA to grow then and emerge as the leader of the Shiite instead of the Imam.. Have you ever seen HA or Iran protesting the disappearance of the Imam? it was always Amal and nobody else.. Iran for many years asked about the disappearance of their diplomat and yet they never bothered with the Imam. Enough said..

      Am Imam for the Shias is a very important religious figure. One wonders why both Iran and Hezbollah have not been too eager to look into this. After the Imam went missing, Hezbollah
      was able to rise to prominence and dominance over Amal with Iran’s approval and blessing.

        Exactly my thoughts.. The Imam was standing in the way of aggressive Iran and HA. Iran was planning HA since the Iranian revolution and i have to admit it was very smart idea on their part. It would been good if HA only decides to Protect Lebanon and stop killing Lebanese for the sake of Iran and Syria. But greed and power and the goal for the Waliat Al Faqih never left their minds.. Look at Iran they’re suppressing worshiping christians and they claim to be better than the Wahabis.. there is no difference between the two except Iran takes its quiet time to achieve its Goal. while the Wahabis want to eliminate christians asap and of course any other muslims who stands in their ways..

          Didn’t Sadr also have a rather Sainted Irish visage too? Just didn’t look right. 😉
          Considering that Nastyrallah was the favourite Apostle of El Supremo#1 on top of that, and Gadaffi was willing to ‘disappear’ anyone of any religion if paid well enough, the biggest wonder is that Sadr thought he could talk sense in Libya and return to the flock with a cudo. Berri’s head still spins.
