Hariri Slams Rouhani's Statement about Lebanon as 'Unacceptable'

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Prime Minister Saad Hariri lashed out at Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stressing that the latter's comments about Lebanon were “unacceptable.”

“Rouhani's affirmation that no decision is made in Lebanon without Iran is unacceptable,” emphasized the PM replying to Rouhani's remarks in a Monday tweet.

“Lebanon is an independent Arab state that accepts no guardianship and refuses what undermines its dignity,” stated the PM.

On Monday, Rouhani said in a speech in Tehran that Iran's position in the Middle East had never been stronger.

He said: “The greatness of the nation of Iran in the region is more than at any other time. In Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, northern Africa, in the Persian Gulf region -- where can action be taken without Iran?" he asked.

Spare us your Bravado! We all know Rouhani is 100% correct and you helped him do it.

If Lebanon had a government, Hariri wouldn't be in it.

Hariri Slams Rouhani's Statement about Lebanon as 'Unacceptable'

and?

Iran through hezbollah said Aoun or no President.

Iran through Hezbollah forced the timing of the Arsal battles and transported the killers of the army soldiers in air conditioned buses.

Iran through hezbollah imposed a proportional representation election law to ensure hezbollah will have parliamentary majority.

so what is your point Hariri?

Mr. Saado Hariri has earned my utmost respect and captured my imagination for Slamming Rouhani's Statement about Lebanon as 'Unacceptable'.

Missing endowed 24 October 2017, 13:23

Fine. What will Hariri do about that ? Nothing, as usual.

Save face and at least summon the iranian ambassador and give him an earful. But you are incapable of even doing a simple routine political maneuver.

Thumb galaxy 24 October 2017, 13:59

didn't the iranian shoe mowaten say just the other day that Iran does not interfere in Lebanon's affairs?:) Yet, his iranian president is saying nothing happens in Lebanon without Iran's approval.

Might be unacceptable but unfortunately very true. Thanks to the 33% veto power they have and let's not forget their military arm.

In the absence of authority they thrived until they became stronger than the army. I do not know anywhere else in the world that this can happen.
