Washington Criticizes Nasrallah Meeting with Huthis

W460

U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley criticized a meeting held between Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and a delegation from Yemen's Houthi rebels on August 19.

“This meeting between Hizbullah and Houthi leadership shows the nature of the regional terrorist threat,” Haley on Twitter.

“Iranian proxies in Lebanon and Yemen pose major dangers to peace and stability in the entire Middle East. The international community should be taking notice of this and be very concerned,” she added.

Hizbullah said on Sunday that its leader has met with a delegation headed by Houthi spokesman Mohamad Abdelsalam to discuss the latest developments in Yemen's civil war.

UAE State Minister for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash has warned in a tweet Sunday of the “consequences” after Nasrallah’s meeting.

“How can the dissociation policy – which Lebanon needs for its political and economic balance and Arab and international position – correspond to Hassan Nasrallah's hosting of a delegation from the Huthi insurgents? This is a question which we call on Lebanon to deal with,” Gargash had said.

US and Gulf states accuse Hizbullah of training and supporting the Iran-backed Shiite Huthi rebels, who are at war with a Saudi-led coalition allied with Yemen's internationally recognized government.

Hizbullah, which is also an Iran-allied Shiite group, says the Huthis are fighting a war against Saudi and American imperialism.

Iran supports the Huthis but denies arming them. Saudi Arabia and Iran are bitter regional rivals.

Sounds like she has not listened to the 'president' of the Islamic Republic:

Thank you southern for being patriotic and for posting under the patriotic alias; my favorite alias you use among many others.

I was shocked to learn from you the Saudi Ambassador in Washington wrote Haley's comment for her to post on Twitter. I re read her comment 10 times and sure enough I detected a clear Saudi accent in her statement which not many people would be able to recognize.

Your linguistic abilities coupled with your your finesse and great analytical skills make you a force to be reckoned with.

I have learned so much from you over the years and I must confess I owe much of Who I am today to you.

Please Keep Posting

Batriotic your a good representation of what a juvenile delinquith is. If kizballah ever had a cause you would exemplify the reason for its failure. You argue blindly without rational yet you expect other young people here whose obvious education exceeds yours that you are correct. Take a strong look into a mirror and question your approach. Nothing wrong with understanding that the greater majority in Lebanon does not want revolution and religious bigotary the same way kizballah claims they dont want deash extremism in Syria. Questioning what you are being sold by bearded men is not only healthy but should make a better world for you.
