NNA - “Democratic Gathering" Leader, MP Walid Jumblatt, welcomed at his Clemenceau residence on Thursday British Ambassador to Lebanon, Hugo shorter, with whom he broached the general political situation at the local and regional scenes.
Jumblatt also met with Ambassador of Egypt to Lebanon, Nazih Najjari, with whom he discussed the current situation.
On a different level, Jumblatt cabled Emily Thornberry, a British Member of the House of Commons, to congratulate her upon assuming her new position.
In his letter, Jumblatt deplored the "heinous Israeli terrorism, and the massacre committed against innocent people". He also stepped up calls for more western pressure to put an end to Israel’s relentless aggression against the Palestinian people.
