Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah: Iran nuclear deal does not affect Lebanon’s demands towards “Israel”

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyid Hasan Nasrallah stressed on Friday that the destiny of the Iranian nuclear deal does not affect Lebanon’s maritime border demarcation file, adding that the Islamic Resistance stance will not change regardless of the outcomes of the ongoing talks between Iran and the world powers.

Addressing Hezbollah laying foundation stone ceremony of a jihadi, touristic landmark in Bekaa’s Janta, Sayyed Nasrallah said,”Lebanon’s oil and gas resources and the disputable zone in Karish will not be affected by whether the nuclear deal will be signed or not.”

Critizing the Lebanese political forces falsely accusing Hezbollah of linking the maritime border file to the nuclear deal, Sayyid Nasrallah added that the US mediator Amos Hochstein is wasting time and that the remaining time is getting shorter.

“If Lebanon secures its rights, calm will be maintained; however, escalation will be inevitable if Lebanon’s rights are denied,” his eminence added.

Sayyid Nasrallah underscored the importance of continuing exerting efforts to form the new Lebanese government, stressing that the customs exchange rate against US dollar in Lebanon must not be raised at once to 20,000 L.L.

His eminence also hailed the Lebanese young athlete Charbel Abou Daher who had withdrawn from an MMA competition in UAE to avoid competing with an Israeli rival.

“This heroic stance is one of the resistance facets and confirms that the Lebanese resistance is cross-sectarian,” Sayyid Nasrallah said, addressing Charbel and his family to express pride of his stance.
