Baghdad / Sky Press
Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said that Hezbollah must abandon its weapons and become a political party for the stability of Lebanon.
Al-Jubeir warned that "all parties in Lebanon will become hostages to Hezbollah and therefore to Iran, unless Hezbollah is disarmed and turned into a political party." We believe that Hezbollah is a terrorist organization and should be disarmed under the Taif Accord, There can not be an armed militia operating outside the rule of law. "
"If the party does not give up its weapons and become a political party, all the parties will be hostages in its hands, that is in the hands of Iran, and this is unacceptable to us or to the Lebanese," he said, adding that "Hezbollah has put many obstacles in front of the prime minister Kidnapped Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, hijacked the banking system in Lebanon for money laundering, hijacked ports to smuggle drugs, and intervene in Yemen, Bahrain and Syria.
Al-Jubeir stressed that his country is against the abduction of the ruling party in Lebanon, saying that "we are against Hizbullah terrorism and interference in the affairs of other countries. We believe that Lebanon will not see peace or security unless the party gives up its weapons and becomes a political party."
"We are trying to communicate with our friends and allies to see what can be done to restore the situation in Lebanon as it was in the past. There can not be a crisis in Lebanon every month because of the party or because Iran has decided," he said. that".
The Saudi foreign minister said last Thursday that the accusations of the arrest of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq al-Hariri were baseless and that Hariri could return to his country whenever he wanted. He said that Hariri lived in Saudi Arabia and that his return was binding on him.
