Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah has affirmed that “Hezbollah has not been asked officially to intervene with Sayyid Abdul Malik al-Houthi in the war in Yemen.”
“Hezbollah cannot play a mediation role, as it openly takes sides: the side of the Yemeni people and Ansarullah,” Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah said in an exclusive interview on Al-Mayadeen TV on Monday.
Considering that a mediator usually asks for concessions from the parties involved, Sayyid Nasrallah conjectured what concessions could be demanded from Ansarullah.
On the issue of mediation, the Lebanese Resistance leader went on to say that “the Iranians stressed that there is nothing that the Yemenis can concede.”
He also stressed that the relationship of Hezbollah with Saudi Arabia and the UAE is “in no way based on ideological issues; rather, the factors that govern the relationship are merely political.”
“The arrests in the UAE are a tool of political pressure on Hezbollah, and they must be dealt with.”
