House Speaker Nabih Berri apologized, in an issued statement today, for "not receiving well-wishers on the Eid Al-Adha occasion, given the conditions that Lebanon is going through, asking the Lord Almighty to bless the Lebanese with many occasions and holidays to come with Lebanon being recovered."

He also wished "the Arab and Islamic nations security, progress and stability, and the Palestinian people to realize their dream of liberation, return, and the establishment of their independent state with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital."
