Future bloc slams Nasrallah’s attitude regarding Saudi Arabia, condemns Hezbollah’s involvement in Yemen

APRIL 21, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) The Future parliamentary bloc held its regular meeting this Tuesday under the chairmanship of former Prime Minister Fouad Siniora, with talks featuring high on what conferees described as the most deprecating speech made by the Secretary General of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Al-Hazm Storm operation.

According to a statement issued at the end of the meeting, Future MPs deemed Nasrallah’s words “a big mistake that has been added to the multiple mistakes that he has already committed vis-a-vis the Lebanese and the Arab countries, (…) the latest of which was his shameful words targeting the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its wise leadership which has long supported Lebanon’s independence and sovereignty and stood beside Lebanon and its people in their just causes, mainly after every Israeli aggression.”

The bloc pointed out that “Nasrallah’s speech triggered a lot of Lebanese to ask questions about the fate of this destructive policy associated with the interests of the Iranian nation.”

“They questioned its impacts on the Lebanese situation in general and its implications on the Lebanese working in Arab countries,” the statement read.

Future Deputies wondered why the Lebanese people were being dragged in unwanted wars, most recently the conflict in Yemen.

Conferees discussed an array of local affairs, among which the budget issue, the pending salary scale bill, the latest achievement made by the Interior Ministry in controlling the riots inside Roumieh prison, as well as the first batch of weapons and equipment provided by France to the Lebanese Army, as part of the Saudi grant, to help Lebanon fight terrorism.
