Berri: ‘it is important that dialogue does not fail’


Speaker Nabih Berri commented on Monday on the resumption of the national dialogue and said that it was important for talks to succeed.

“I support all parties’ right to bring up any issue they want during the talk sessions , but it is important that dialogue does not fail,” Berri told An-Nahar newspaper.

The speaker added that all political parties must take part in the dialogue sessions and “not waste this opportunity.”

Lebanon’s rival political leaders will hold a second round of National Dialogue Monday amid fears that a long-running split over the issue of Hezbollah’s arms might bring the all-party talks to a halt.

Berri who heads up the Amal Movement id strongly allied with Hezbollah .
