Lebanese Minister of Industry Hussein Hajj Hassan is seen in Damascus, Aug 17 ,2017 Syria during a personal visit to attend the fair, since he was not authorized by the cabinet to represent Lebanon in any official capacity

Hussein Hajj Hassan, who represents the Iranian backed Hezbollah militant group in the cabinet  as  the Minister of Industry   met  on Thursday with Syrian Minister of Economy and Trade, Mohammad Samer al-Khalil during a  personal visit to the Syrian capital , since he was not authorized by the cabinet to represent Lebanon in  any official capacity. Agriculture Minister Ghazi Zoaiter ( who represents the Amal Movement , a close ally of Hezbollah )  and a  private sector delegation accompanied him  for the opening of a  fair in the capital Damascus, NNA reported.

The meeting was attended by the Secretary General of the Higher Lebanese-Syrian Council Nasri Khoury , a delegation of the Lebanese Industrialists Association, and a panel of Lebanese exporters and businessmen.

The Higher Lebanese-Syrian Council was established during the Syrian occupation of Lebanon and for this reason several Lebanese leaders called for abolishing it . The council’s headquarters are in Syria and many in Lebanon accuse Khoury , a member of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party ( SSNP) of bias towards Syria and see no justification for the council after Lebanon and Syria established diplomatic relations and embassies were opened in both Damascus and Beirut .

Both sides agreed on studying the market needs and the means to cover them without putting the economy of any country at stake.

For his part, the Syrian Minister explained the measures undertaken by the Syrian government to protect the national economy and production, and maintain monetary stability.

“It is important to carry on communication in order to widen the scope of thinking on many levels, especially in the fields of economy, industry, and trade,” the Syrian Minister told a joint news conference following the talks.

For his part,   Hajj Hassan indicated that talks touched on an array of economic and political affairs.

Visit by pro Hezbollah ministers  sparks internal disputes in Lebanon

The idea of the visit  by ministers affiliated with “Hezbollah”, the AMAL Movement and the Free Patriotic Movement (FPM),  sparked internal disputes and a wave of opposition, due to its negative effects on the Lebanese arena.

State Minister for the Displaced Affairs, Moueen al-Merhebi said that the visit would not be official but would be made on a personal basis.

Speaking to Asharq Al-Awsat, he said: “The insistence of some ministers to visit Damascus has caused a major political dispute in the country, forcing Interior Minister Nohad al-Mashnouq to ask to discuss the matter within the government, and put it to vote”.

The minister stressed that any minister visiting Syria would go there in his personal capacity because he would not be in any way dispatched by the government.

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea underlined during a press conference  the importance of the “policy of dissociation”, which was stipulated in the ministerial statement.

“During the last cabinet meeting, PM Saad Hariri refused to discuss any item on Syria’s visit, but some ministers confirmed that they were going to go there in their official capacity. No, if you go to Syria, you go on a personal, not official, basis, and you would be violating Lebanon’s legitimacy, the cabinet principles and the new political era,” Geagea said, addressing ministers insisting on going to Damascus.

He warned that if anyone went to Syria, Lebanon will be immediately classified in the Iran axis, and therefore “we will lose what remains of our relations with the Arab countries.”

    What a scary picture of Hajj Hassan. Can anyone imagine this guy representing Lebanon in an official capacity ?

    • Rascal

      He doesn’t represent Lebanon, he represents Iran.

      • Hind Abyad

        He represent Lebanon, can’t your read?

        • Rascal

          Apparently you can not. He represents the Iranian occupation force of Lebanon. The Syrian occupation was way worse than the Israeli occupation. But you don’t want to talk about that.

        Greater Israel” consists in an area extending from the Nile Valley to the Euphrates. According to Stephen Lendman, “A near-century ago, the World Zionist Organization’s plan for a Jewish state included:
        • historic Palestine;
        • South Lebanon up to Sidon and the Litani River;
        • Syria’s Golan Heights, Hauran Plain and Deraa; and
        • control of the Hijaz Railway from Deraa to Amman, Jordan as well as the Gulf of Aqaba.
        Some Zionists wanted more – land from the Nile in the West to the Euphrates in the East, comprising Palestine, Lebanon, Western Syria and Southern Turkey.”
        The Zionist project supports the Jewish settlement movement. More broadly it involves a policy of excluding Palestinians from Palestine leading to the eventual annexation of both the West Bank and Gaza to the State of Israel.

            The Israel of Theodore Herzl (1904) and of Rabbi Fischmann (1947)

            Theodore Herzl Complete Diaries, Vol. II. p. 711, the founder of Zionism, says that the area of the Jewish State stretches: “From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates.”

            Rabbi Fischmann, member of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, declared in his testimony to the U.N. Special Committee of Enquiry on 9 July 1947: “The Promised Land extends from the River of Egypt up to the Euphrates, it includes parts of Syria and Lebanon.”
