BEIRUT: Speaker Nabih Berri called on Gulf states to remove travel warnings for Lebanon as he held talks with Kuwait's Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al-Sabah Sunday.

“I hope efforts are made to lift the travel ban to Lebanon for our brothers in the Gulf,” Berri said during his talks with the Kuwaiti Emir.

Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates have repeatedly renewed their advisories warning Gulf citizens against traveling to Lebanon due to the frail security situation.

Berri, who is currently in Kuwait for a two-day visit as part of his tour of the Gulf, hailed the “ongoing initiatives” by Kuwait to support Lebanon. He also called for strengthened unity among Muslims.

Berri expressed hope the Emir would work for a rapprochement between Iran and the Gulf countries, particularly Saudi Arabia, adding that such a breakthrough would have a positive impact on the entire region.

Berri also discussed the conditions of the Syrian and Palestinian refugees on Lebanese territories with the Kuwaiti Emir and Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf al-Ahmed al-Sabah

For his part, the Kuwaiti Emir said his country would do everything in its power to "assist and support Lebanon in various fields.”
