Speaker Nabih Berri Tuesday sought Egypt's help in reviving a massive Saudi military aid package to the Lebanese Army, in the latest bid to defuse a diplomatic crisis with Riyadh caused by perceived "hostile" stances linked to Hezbollah and Iran at Arab League and Islamic meetings. Berri made the plea during a meeting in Cairo with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi who underlined the need for Lebanese leaders to elect a new president at any cost. During an hourlong meeting, Berri and Sisi reviewed bilateral relations, developments in the region and threats of terrorism, the National News Agency reported.Berri stressed the importance of an inter-Arab dialogue to settle regional conflicts and as well as a rapprochement between Saudi Arabia and Iran, the two regional rivals that are vying for influence in the volatile region.
