“I expect the first fruits to be a relief to the Yemen crisis as a regional priority concern by the countries signing the Iranian nuclear agreement,” Berri was quoted as telling visitors late Sunday.

“The Iran nuclear deal would also help resolve regional crises because there is no end to the ongoing wars without political solutions,” Berri said.

The speaker also believed the nuclear deal – expected to be announced Monday after Iran and major powers hammer out the final details – to have a positive impact on Lebanon, allowing internal and external sides to work to resolve the presidential election crisis.

Lebanon has been without a head of state since May 2014 because rival lawmakers have been unable to agree on a successor to President Michel Sleiman.
