President Michel Sleiman Inaugural Speech
Nice to see him in a suit. President Michel Sleiman spoke of strengthening Lebanon’s constitutional institutions, minimizing incendiary political rhetoric, preserving the rights of diaspora Lebanese and pursuing constructive and balanced relations with Syria.
Parliament speaker Nabih Berri on the other hand, sneaked a message in Parliament to the United States, saying:”I thank the United States nonetheless, seeing that it seems to have been convinced that Lebanon is not the appropriate place for its New Middle East plan“. (hopefully neither is Iran nor Syria)
