Nasrallah Likely to Voice Hizbullah Stance on Dialogue during March 29 Speechإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Hizbullah's position on the national dialogue call issued by President Michel Suleiman will likely be expressed by the party's chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah next week, reported the daily An Nahar on Sunday.
It said that Nasrallah is scheduled to hold a speech during a cultural event in the southern town of Ainata on the afternoon of March 29.
Suleiman had called for the resumption of the national dialogue on Friday in order to continue discussions on a defense strategy.
Hizbullah has recently been critical of the president since he was vocal in his rejection of the “army-people-resistance” equation in the government policy statement, describing it as wooden.
Media reports on Saturday said that Hizbullah will boycott a national dialogue session chaired by Suleiman.
The president is scheduled to chair the all-party talks at the Baabda Palace on March 31.
March 8 sources meanwhile told An Nahar that Suleiman is seeking to hold the talks “to cover his implicit desire to extend his term,” which ends in May.
