HARIRI RECEIVES DELEGATIONS FROM INTERPARLIAMENTARY ASSEMBLY ON ORTHODOXY, ARAB PARLIAMENTARY UNION AND LEBANESE UNIVERSITY

The President of the Council of Ministers Saad Hariri received on Monday at the Grand Serail a delegation of the Interparliamentary Assembly on Orthodoxy, headed by its Secretary General, Greek MP Andreas Michailidis, in the presence of MPs Atef Majdalani, Ghassan Moukheiber and Riad Rahal.

After the meeting, Michailidis said: “We represent the general assembly of the Interparliamentary Assembly on orthodoxy. We met with a number of political and spiritual leaders of Christian communities. After these meetings, we came up with the idea of holding an international conference next year on March 25th. The theme would be the situation of Christians in the Middle East. We will provide you with more details after the meeting of our general assembly at the end of the month in Rome.”

He added: “Prime Minister Hariri, like all other political leaders in Lebanon, supported this initiative and we will work for it to succeed and have practical application for the benefit of Lebanon and its friendly people.”

Hariri also received the Secretary General of the Arab Inter-Parliamentary Union Fayez Shawabkeh, who said after the meeting: I informed PM Hariri on the work of the Union. Its temporary headquarter has been in Beirut for five years while waiting for the situation in Syria to improve. We have the support of Speaker Nabih Berri who was the president of the union last year and is working for cooperation between Arab parliaments. Prime Minister Hariri expressed his readiness to cooperate and provide all facilities for the work of the Union in the procedures related to the government side.

Hariri then received the Executive Committee of the Full-Time Professors Association at the Lebanese University, headed by Dr. Mohammed Smaili, who said after the meeting that the meeting was positive. He added that they discussed issues related to the budget of the Lebanese University, its mutual fund and the nomination of deans of schools.
