The head of the Lebanese community in the Ivory Coast Friday called for next week's Lebanese Diaspora Energy conference to be postponed as tensions increase between President Michel Aoun and Speaker Nabih Berri. Reports emerged in recent weeks that Berri has called on his supporters living in Ivory Coast to boycott the upcoming conference scheduled for the first week of February. President of the Lebanese Diaspora in Ivory Coast, Najib Zahr, Friday called for the postponement of the conference because of the Aoun-Berri feud sparked by an Aoun-backed decree promoting certain Lebanese Army officers. Instead, Khalil implied people had been pushed to call for a boycott because of the way previous LDE conferences had been orchestrated.
