HARIRI DEPLORES INSULT AGAINST BERRI, CALLS TO WEATHER THE STORM

Prime Minister Saad Hariri deplored, in a statement on Monday, the deterioration of the political rhetoric in the recent hours, regretting its reverberations in the street.

“It is sad to see the political rhetoric sliding to the levels it has reached in the recent hours, and to see its reverberations in the street,” Hariri said.

“The dignity of the President of the republic Michel Aoun and House Speaker Nabih Berri is that of all the Lebanese insulting them is an insult to all of us, to our institutions and sects; and a disgraceful conduct that must stop,” he added.

“I urge the concerned sides to work on weathering this storm, especially that the challenges we are facing are way more serous than the verbal violence we are witnessing,” Hariri stressed.

“Lebanon’s stability must prevail any other matter,” he underlined, renewing confidence in the wisdom of President Aoun and Speaker Berri.
