Hizbullah international relations officer Ammar Moussawi slammed United Nations Chief Ban Ki-moon’s semi-annual report on the implementation of U.N. Security Council resolution 1559.
Moussawi expressed irritation during a meeting with U.N. Special Coordinator for Lebanon Derek Plumbly over the language used by Banin his report concerning the arms of the resistance.
Ban’s report, issued on April 20, reiterated that the presence of Hizbullah and other armed groups on Lebanese territories was impeding the implementation of resolution 1559.
It said Hizbullah's arms posed a key challenge to the safety of Lebanese civilians and to the authority of the government and called on the group to complete the transformation into a solely Lebanese political party.
Moussawi and Plumbly also discussed the local developments and the situation along the border with Israel.
Plumbly toured Nahr al-Bared Palestinian refugee camp earlier on Wednesday and held talks with Palestinian factions in northern Lebanon.
The Palestinian delegation discussed with the U.N. official the humanitarian rights of the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.
The delegation demanded Plumbly to urge the Lebanese authorities to work swiftly on reconstructing the rest of the damaged houses in Nahr al-Bared.
They hoped that the Lebanese government would end the military and security measures near the refugee camp.
