BEIRUT: Speaker Nabih Berri wrote to the head of Hamas’ politburo Khaled Meshaal Tuesday to congratulate him on his re-election.

“Prioritize restoring unity and harmony among the Palestinian because it is the strongest weapon that can be used to confront the enemy, and the only means to fulfill the national aspirations of the Palestinian people,” Berri said in his letter.

Separately, Syrian Speaker Mohammad Lahham, Jordanian Speaker Saad Surour and former Kuwaiti speaker, Jasim alKharafi, contacted Berri to inquire about his health after undergoing minor surgery Saturday.
