House Speaker, Nabih Berri, on Tuesday deemed 'Amal Movement-Hizbullah' alliance as a patriotic duo, saying it constitutes the only remaining immunity to protect Lebanon along with the tripartite equation "army, people and resistance."

Speaker Berri's fresh words came during his meeting with a large popular delegation from the southern town of Kfar Dunin, who visited him at his Mseileh residence.

Berri stressed that he is proud of what some call a 'Shiite duo', saying: "We would have been ashamed of any duo had it been against national unity, Lebanon's Arab identity and its patriotic causes, notably the Palestine cause."

Berri underlined that he shall work on reinforcing this alliance as long as the Israeli enemy is annoyed and disturbed over this duo.

On the other hand, Berri welcomed at Mseileh residence several popular delegations from various southern towns and villages.
