After the meeting, Sheikh Al-Masri said, "we were honored to meet his Eminence Sheikh Al-Aql, to invite His Eminence to attend the anniversary of the concealment of the leader Al-Imam Moussa Al-Sadr, which will take place in Nabatiyeh this year.

In turn, his Eminence expressed his great thanks to the distinguished role played by his Excellency President Nabih Berri on the Qabr-Shmoun crisis, and his constant keenness on the unity of the Druze position, which establishes a pan-Islamic unity that his Excellency will work to achieve, as an introduction to establish a comprehensive national consensus as a basis for establishing a nation that benefits all its citizens which deserves its people – as a country of kindness and coexistence as called by Al-Imam Moussa Al-Sadr himself”.
He added, “The conversation with his Eminence dealt with several affairs, and eventually he sent with us a special thanks and a liability to his Excellence President Berri, and we responded that there is no liabilities between us but the liability of a common precious religion of monotheism for one God, who brings everyone under His banner”.
