BEIRUT (Reuters) – Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri suggested on Monday that a breakthrough could be imminent in talks over the formation of a new national unity government.
“In principle, something should happen today,” Berri said in response to a question about the government. His comments were broadcast by Lebanese media.
Prime Minister-designate Saad al-Hariri has been trying to form a government since a parliamentary election in May.
