Hezbollah leader Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah speaks on current events

Hezbollah General Secretary Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah has said that the seizure of a number of pro-Resistance news websites reveals the false claims of Washington about freedom.

This came during his televised speech on Friday, June 25, at 17:30 Beirut Time.

The speech was made in order to tackle the latest political developments in Lebanon, as well as the governmental deadlock and the exacerbating crisis in Lebanon, Al-Manar reported.

The Sayyid addressed Iran’s nuclear talks in Vienna saying: “Vienna talks exclusively tackle Iran’s nuclear deal; only the US is trying to involve Lebanon.”

“Recent Iranian-Saudi talks in Baghdad did not tackle the Lebanese issues,” he noted.

“The US move to seize dozens of websites exposes Washington’s false claims about freedom,” he said, “US statements about supporting the Lebanese Army to face Hezbollah aims at stirring sedition among the Lebanese.”

“Hezbollah has always called for reinforcing the Lebanese army, which guarantees Lebanon’s security, integrity, and unity,” he added, “Hezbollah is not worried about enhancing the military capabilities of the Lebanese Army; the US is the one that prevents this, for sake of the Israeli [regime].

“Some Lebanese parties unfairly blame Hezbollah for the governmental deadlock in Lebanon,” he added.

Nasrallah added that the 8-8-8 formula has never been adopted as the basis of the new government creation, and said that Lebanese Shia Muslims are not seeking tripartite power-sharing.

Nasrallah thanked MP Gebran Bassil for his trust, saying that “Hezbollah will exert the maximum efforts to facilitate the cabinet formation.”

“Hezbollah insists on preserving the share of President Michel Aoun and the Free Patriotic Movement in the new government.”

“Hezbollah has finished all the logistical preparations to import fuel from Iran; if the state fails to tackle the shortage crisis, the final decision will be taken.”

“All Lebanese parties must assume responsibility for canceling the government’s subsidies,” he said.

Nasrallah urged Hezbollah supporters to avoid engaging in social media quarrels that stir sedition, stressing such a thing is religiously forbidden.

He furthermore thanked the Iraqi government for approving fuel aid to Lebanon, despite the hard economic condition in Iraq.
