De Freij: Lebanon is no Hezbollah priority

JANUARY 18, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Hezbollah’s top priority lies not here in Lebanon rather than bolstering Iran’s power and influence region wide, minister of Administrative Development Nabil De Freij, stated during an interview on “Radio Orient (ash-Shraq)” today.

The minister however underscored the significance of ongoing dialogue between all Lebanese protagonists in view of the prevailing regional circumstances.

De Freij retorted that the one who decides the actual timing of any meeting between Hasan Nasrullah and Saad Hariri is for sure Future Bloc leader Saad Hariri and not Hezbollah Chief Hasan Nasrallah since in his words, “Hariri has been acting for so long in a capacity as former Prime Minister of Lebanon.”

The minister duly held Hezbollah Chief Hasan Nasrallah and his party fully responsible for any eventual deportation of any Lebanese expatriates from Bahrain when he likened the Gulf monarchy to Israel.
