Mikati relies on 'friendly countries' to restore calm in Lebanon


Caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati has stressed Lebanon’s reliance on the efforts of friendly countries for restoring peace in south Lebanon.

In an interview published Monday in al-Joumhouria newspaper, Mikati hoped that friendly countries would succeed to restore peace and calm along the southern border.

Mikati had also condemned Israel's brutality in an interview with the Turkish national radio and television corporation TRT.

"We don't have any guarantees," Mikati said, stressing the Israeli killing of children, women and elderly. "No one cares and there are no international reactions to what's happening in Gaza."

The caretaker PM went on to say that although Lebanon fully supports Palestine, he is trying to spare Lebanon from entering the war.

"We do not want war and we are seeking peace," he said. "But at the same time we do not want anyone to desecrate Lebanese land," he added.

The only way to restore calm in Lebanon is to have the Government implement Resolution 1701 by forcing Hizballah to disarm or at least withdraw to north of the Litani.

Zionist Pill, did you think we’d forget that Israel armed and enabled Hezbollah and Hamas in the mid 1980s to weaken secular PLO in Lebanon and occupied Palestine?

I’ll just repeat something I’ve said, it took us 2 centuries to rid ourselves of the European crusaders, it may take us 3 centuries this time but your descendants will go back to your ethnic and biological Europe be it Russia, Spain or Germany. No Arab puppet sheikh, king or sultan will be able to protect you forever!
