Nasrallah: Nothing new expected on presidency in near future
Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Monday announced that “there is nothing clear or new in the near future” regarding the presidential file.
“The Qatari envoy is exerting daily efforts, there is nothing clear or new in the near future and we must wait to see more efforts in the presidential file,” Nasrallah said in a televised address.
“The Qatari envoy is trying to reach a certain result but there is nothing new that I can tell you,” he said.
“The dialogue that Speaker Nabih Berri called for was a chance, but it was wasted due to bickering and arrogance,” Nasrallah lamented.
Nasrallah also said that “it is unacceptable to link between the issue of the land border and the issue of the presidency.”
“We do not bargain over the issue of the land border in any other files,” he added, while noting that negotiations over the land border with Israel is “the responsibility of the Lebanese state,” not Hezbollah.
“The resistance will cooperate with the state in any step that contributes to liberating the land,” Nasrallah said.
Moreover, the Hezbollah leader called for “a national plan and national strategy that the Lebanese would carry to the world” regarding the Syrian refugee crisis.
“The United States was responsible for the war in Syria and it is now responsible for the economic crisis there,” he charged.
