Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri told visitors on Sunday that   that an Iranian nuclear deal could help pave the way to ending major conflicts in the Middle East, and the presidential vacuum in Lebanon.

“I expect the first fruits to be a relief to the Yemen crisis as a regional priority concern by the countries signing the Iranian nuclear agreement,” Berri was quoted as saying by  visitors on  Sunday.

“The Iran nuclear deal would also help resolve regional crises because there is no end to the ongoing wars without political solutions,” Berri added

The speaker also believed the nuclear deal  to have a positive impact on Lebanon, allowing internal and external sides to work to resolve the presidential election crisis.

The Lebanese parliament failed on June 24th  and for the 25th   time in a row to elect a president to replace Michel Suleiman whose term ended on May 25.

As in the past sessions the parliament was unable to reach a quorum because the Iranian backed Hezbollah militant group and its ally MP Michel Aoun’s Change and Reform bloc MPs boycotted the sessions.

Berri who is allied with Hezbollah and Aoun postponed  the election to July 15  , 2015 .

Lebanese Forces chief Samir Geagea  who was the first to announce his presidential candidacy has consistently been  blaming  Hezbollah  and Iran for the vacuum at the country’s top Christian post, saying the party  and its backer have  been insisting on backing a single candidate, in reference to Aoun, and not making compromises.

“Hezbollah’s top priority is the region’s crisis and not Lebanon,” he said last May .

Last march Geagea  also described the presidential vacuum as a “misery,” and blamed Iran , the backed of the Hezbollah-militant group for the deadlock .

“More than any other time Iran does not want a president for Lebanon unless he belonged to its camp,” Geagea told journalists who visited him in Maarab last  March 5th

    I fail to see how the presidency is tied up to Iran’s nuke… The problem lays first and foremost with the Christian leadership…
    If the Christians unite they will elect a president no matter what Iran thinks… So stop turning Iran into the key solution…
    Since president Chamoun we never had ANY reliable solid leadership. Really compare those heads… Who would you want to represent you?
    Please answer with 1, 2 or 3… (I know, I know 3 is no longer an option sadly)

      2… Stop Netanyahu-Saudi factor.
      3… Netanyahu is no Chamoun

  3. Berri is the facilitator head of the snake. We all knew this was contingent on a the nuke deal. Having criminal war lords as President is much worse than having no one! Bye Bye Saudi Arabia, you have been dumped!
