BEIRUT: Speaker Nabih Berri said Thursday that dialogue is the only way out of crisis and the best solution to controversial issues.
“We should draw lessons from what happened and is happening in Geneva and learn that the quickest way to address disputes, whether major or minor, is through dialogue,” said Berri.
Berri also expressed his relief with the positive atmosphere over Iran's negotiations with the West on its nuclear program.
“It is a victory for Iran's diplomacy and the country, like any other, has the right to develop peaceful nuclear technology,” he said.
Earlier this week, Iran launched a new round of talks about its nuclear weapons with the six world powers, namely Russia, China, France, Britain, the U.S. and Germany, in Geneva.
Geneva is also expected to host to an international conference on a political solution to the Syrian conflict on Nov. 23-24.
Berri also said Arab and Iranian officials should not miss the opportunity to meet and hold talks because “understanding and meeting is not just a choice but also a fate.”
