House Speaker, Nabih Berri, welcomed on Monday a delegation of the "Strong Lebanon" parliamentary bloc, including National Defense Minister Elias Bou Saab.
On emerging and speaking in the name of the delegation, MP Kanaan said that it was high time to take a serious step towards the adoption of anti-corruption laws forwarded by the "Strong Lebanon" bloc.
Kanaan said that Speaker Berri saw eye to eye with the delegation over the need to take a serious step towards the endorsement of these project laws.
The Lawmaker highlighted the need to activate the parliamentary general body and committees for the regularity of the work of constitutional institutions.
On the other hand, Speaker Berri met with the Secretary General of the Tashnag party, MP Hagop Pakradounian, with whom he discussed the general situation in the country.
On emerging, MP Pakradounian underscored the importance of seeking solutions via dialogue, urging all to take lessons from the past because, as he said, "the fate of the nation is at stake."
He stressed that all solutions should fall in the framework of "rescuing the nation."
