Bassil: Eradication of Terrorism in Region is Essential to Stop its Worldwide Spread

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil has told the U.N. Security Council that the international community should launch war on terrorism to stop its spread in the Middle East and the entire world.

“Lebanon considers that the war on terror should be worldwide because terrorism represents a world threat,” Bassil told a Council meeting on terrorism.

“The eradication of terrorism in the region is an essential condition to stop its proliferation in the world,” said Bassil at Wednesday's ministerial-level meeting which was headed by Russia.

The meeting focused on the settlement of conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa and countering the terrorist threat in the region.

This month, Russia holds the presidency of the Security Council.

Bassil said Lebanon is fully involved in the war on terror to steer the country and its people clear of radicalism.

He told the Council that the Lebanese army is involved in daily skirmishes with terrorists taking the Lebanese-Syrian border as a refuge.

The threat of al-Nusra Front and the Islamic State group rose in August last year when they overran the northeastern border town of Arsal and took with them hostages form the military and police.

Security forces are also pursuing all terrorist networks and sleeper cells in the country, Bassil said.

During an earlier meeting that included the foreign ministers of the European Union and Jordan, Bassil called for the creation of a safe zone in Syria to house refugees.

He said the return of the displaced Syrians to their country was the only solution to the refugee crisis.

Lebanon hosts around 1.5 million Syrian refugees, amounting to one third of its population.

Ironic when Bassil talks about eradication of terrorism, when he and his boss are the best allies of hezbollah, the most notorious terror group in the world.

That is funny you mention that, they have been removed from the terror list, also they cannot be compared to your brothers in Nusra and ISIS.

The Resistance fought Israel and Takfiris in self defense, that does not make them terrorists.

This used to be a nice forum where you could actually discuss issues. Now it's just spam bots calling others trolls.

To Whom It May Concern
I, the_roar, a well respected, heavily voted, liked, and admired shia poster with 58 accounts (3rd generation Australian) on naharnet hereby declare that until further notice I suspend my membership in this forum similar to what MP Emile Rahmeh ( who got the highest votes in the last elections ) did when he suspended his membership in the Lebanese Parliament in SOLIDARITY with the unlawful, unjustified, and oppressive decision by the administration of this forum to ban my fellow shia poster Flamethrower.
Let it be know to all that such practices by management contradict with the basic fundamentals of the Iranian constitution and free speech in North Korea.
I remain,
