Lebanese President Defends Hezbollah: Its Allegiances No Harm to Lebanese Politics
Lebanese President Michel Aoun has spoken up in defense of Hezbollah, telling a visiting British official that the group’s allegiances in the region do not affect internal Lebanese politics.
President Michel Aoun’s office quoted him as saying that Hezbollah is part of the Lebanese people and is represented in the Cabinet and parliament.
The comments by Aoun came after his meeting with Britain’s Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt on Thursday.
On another note, Aoun noted the "cooperation between Lebanon and Britain in various fields, especially in terms of supporting the Lebanese Armed Forces that have enabled the Lebanese army to defeat terrorists in the Bekaa border region."
