Fadlallah: Warning Statements by Foreign Embassies 'Contrary to Norms'

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Hizbullah MP Hassan Fadlallah stressed on Monday that foreign embassies in Lebanon have “no right to speak about the country's internal security,” dubbing their latest warning statements as “irregular,” the National News Agency reported on Monday.

“No foreign embassy in our country is allowed to speak about our internal security,” said Fadlallah during a workshop on covering the parliamentary elections organized by the National Council for Audiovisual Media, in cooperation with the Italian regulator of communications and information.

Referring to the latest “warning statements issued by foreign embassies violated Lebanese norms. Lebanon's media must affront such phenomena,” he said.

Many western embassies, including the U.S., British, Canadian and French, have issued security warnings over the weekend.

The warnings have sparked panic among Lebanese citizens in the past two days, especially after the French embassy warned Friday of a “heightened security risk in the next 48 hours.”

The warnings coincided with terror attacks in France and Britain.

these people have no shame. the FPM denounces corruption yet they are the most corrupt by far in the country then this terrorist organization rep employed by a foreign power denounces foreign nation warning their citizens to be careful in Lebanon. the US embassy does it all the time for its citizens all over the world even if it's in friendly countries such as England or France.

Embassies commenting on security for the benefit of their citizens happens regularly. Why does this Iranian think otherwise?

Ashraf and Sami should be careful. They might not make it till 2018. Hizbalot are onto them. The current government and the parties involved will be held accountable.

They're warning their citizens because they care about them, meanwhile the Lebanese guy is still detained in Iran and no one cares
