berryThe speaker of Lebanon’s parliament emphasized the fact that America secretly and openly interferes in Lebanon’s internal affairs. He said: “Washington would benefit from a war in Lebanon.”
Nabih Berry alluded to the telephone conversations and meetings between American and Lebanese officials and announced that the White House openly and secretly interferes in Lebanon’s internal affairs.

He condemned this American interference and said: “Washington officials examine the internal affairs of Lebanon and exert their pressure through telephone conversations with parliament members and through their ambassador in Beirut.”

Nabih Berry also spoke with Al-Nahar, a Lebanese newspaper, and said: “It was said that America does not interfere in the internal affairs of Lebanon and other countries in the world. The opposite is true. They interfere in everything from southern Sudan to Zahlah (an area located in eastern Lebanon).”

He added: “What is John Kerry, a democratic senator, after with his interference in southern Sudan? Why is he pushing for separation?”

The Lebanese speaker of the parliament clearly said: “The American ambassador has proven through his actions and words that he openly interferes through consultation with representatives of the parliament.”

However, In an interview with As-Safir newspaper published on Tuesday, Lebanon Parliament Speaker Nabi Berri said that Prime Minister Saad Hariri erred in not announcing his commitment to the terms of the Syria-Saudi initiative.

Nabih Berri mourned the death of the Syrian-Saudi initiative adding that the pre-indictment phase would differ from the post-indictment phase. He expressed astonishment at the comparison between the circumstances of his election as Parliament Speaker and Hariri’s assignment as the Prime Minister that was echoed by Future movement MPs and hinted by the President of the Democratic Gathering MP Walid Jumblatt. He also condemned March 14 coalition statements that implied that Hariri is the only Sunni representative for the premiership.

“Does Omar Karami, who was appointed as the country’s premier several times in the past, not represent the Sunnis in Lebanon?” Berri asked.

The speaker said that March 8 ministers had no other option but to resign last week, in a bid to change the status quo. “The opposition has mourned the death of the Saudi-Syrian [initiative to end the Lebanese impasse]… New negotiations should be launched to settle on a new compromise.”

Berri wondered at the behavior of the US Ambassador to Lebanon Maura Connelly whom Foreign Affairs Minister Ali Shami summoned Monday for interfering in Lebanese internal affairs.

“I dare anyone to prove that Syrian and Iranian ambassadors to Lebanon are interfering in the country’s domestic affairs,” Berri said when asked to respond to those questioning why Shami does not summon Damascus and Tehran’s ambassadors as he did to Connelly
