BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanon’s parliament speaker Nabih Berri said on Wednesday that the government still stands after the prime minister’s shock resignation, according to sources who met with him.

Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri’s resignation in a weekend broadcast from Saudi Arabia “in this form” will not change the government’s capacities, the sources cited Berri as saying.
