Hizbullah International Relations official Ammar Moussawi stressed on Saturday that the party supports the measures undertaken by the army to preserve stability in Lebanon.
“The army is a national institution that is tasked with maintaining stability in the country and pursuing security violators,” Moussawi said in a meeting with U.N. Special Coordinator for Lebanon Derek Plumbly.
The army recently carried out raids to arrest security violators across Lebanon.
The two officials also discussed the latest developments in Lebanon and the region.
Moussawi briefed Plumbly on Hizbullah's stance from the anti-Islam film and cartoons mocking Prophet Mohammed .
“The party denounces all acts that insult religious symbols,” he pointed out.
Protests against the film "Innocence of Muslims", which mocks Islam, have erupted across the Muslim world and tens of thousands took to the streets across Asia and the Middle East Friday as Western missions closed amid fears of violence.
A French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo also printed cartoons caricaturing Prophet Mohammed.
He reiterated Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah's call for an international resolution that incriminates insults against religion.
On Monday, Nasrallah warned against the broadcast of the entire anti-Islam movie during a rally, held in Beirut's southern suburb, protesting the film.
The Hizbullah leader made a rare public appearance, his fifth in six years, at the rally.
Nasrallah held the United States responsible for ensuring the halt of the airing of the movie, Innocence of Muslims, that has sparked outrage and anti-U.S. Rallies throughout the Muslim world.
